Ashley Kindle

Ashley is an avid fan of all things food and beverage, especially when it comes to the unique confectionery space. She likes long trips to old fashion candy shoppes, a visit to a local brewery and a unique cocktail. The best thing she ever ate was a filo dough-wrapped Alaskan Salmon made by a family friend.
