Name: Ashley Lauckner
Montana State University Billings
Graduated with Bachelors of Accounting
I am a born and raised Montanan that believes in the value of hard work and seeing the beauty in each opportunity that is presented. Having the influence of entrepreneurship around me for the majority of my life, I thrive at helping business owners realize their potential by connecting with their customers on a personal level. After leaving my career in bookkeeping and accounting in 2014, I created a parenting blog, Mommy Wants Coffee, to share my adventures in parenting two small children and to discuss issues that I hadn’t seen out in the open before.
Expertise: Copyrights & Social Media
Writing gave me a way to connect with people and give them useful information to help them navigate through any number of issues they are facing. In doing so, I cultivated an amazing, and large, social media following and found the power that those networks truly have in reaching a mass population. Along with my passion of writing, this new venture gave me the drive to find out all I could about reaching people through social media and what content different people truly wanted to help them in their everyday life. In 2016, I had the honor of being published on the Huffington Post and became a contributor to their website.
