Heavily influenced by her childhood and drawing inspiration from early memories, it began with her mother bringing home vintage Gunny Sack dresses to play dress-up. Remembering the way clothing moved, how it felt and the way it made her feel impacts her love of fashion to this day. Ashley grew up with a magical forest behind her house where she turned trees into pretend animals and made pies from wild onions; her childhood experiences reinforce her emphasis on children/adults and the art of play. As an adult, her journey took her through innumerable hours of retail, a decade of intermittently selling goods online, and some volunteer work sprinkled into the mix. Do Good Co. felt like a natural combination of all of the above. "I see Do Good Co. being an artistically playful place of community. A place known for making a difference that ripples throughout the world. " As a lover of movement, nature, and community, she's always on the hunt for pieces that inspire and spark connection.

She loves Do Good Co. because it represents fashion with a purpose; most of her working experience thus far is between digital marketing and nonprofit work, so she jumped at the opportunity to combine her skills, her desire to enact change in our community, and her passion for creativity and apparel. When she isn't at the store, Stephanie spends her free time reading books, listening to podcasts, cooking good food, and snuggling with her three rescued animals. Her favorite hobby includes digging for secondhand treasures around the area and online. Once in a while, you can even catch her exploring photography as a medium, both in front of and behind the camera. She loves diving into new projects and is always eager to learn something new, whether that's a skill, a fact, or someone's story.

Since the beginning, she provided a great deal of our images by using her talents to donate until formally joining the staff this year. In her own words, Ali loves Do Good Co. because of what it "stands for, serving kids, supporting mental health, and helping the sweet little pets in our city." She loves doing good because she truly believes it makes the world a happier place. Outside of Do Good Co., Ali is a Canadian-born girl married to a Midwestern boy who is known for driving out of her way to get a good latte. She classifies herself as "an introverted people person," but she ultimately wants to get to know you. She lives her life by the belief that every time you do something selfless, it makes your life (and someone else’s) just a little bit lighter. She believes in singing along to all of the songs, hugging those closest to you (often), and expressing gratitude every single day.
