I’m Ashley O, an emotional support human, single mother of 2, and an introverted extrovert. I love Harry Potter, backgammon, cross stitching, food, and live music … I know, I’m a mixed bag … also a native South Floridian – which is basically a unicorn (some days more like a stegosaurus).
This job that I love SOOO MUCH, has given me so many great opportunities. I’ve gotten to interview the most amazing bands …. Twenty One Pilots, The Killers, Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Jimmy Eat World, The 1975 and even Cage the Elephant (P.S. found out we were related), BUT the best part is being connected to my community and getting to make a difference in my home town.
The thing I'm most proud of is 'Ashley O’s Food Fight' and it started behind this microphone with the help of Neighbors4Neighbors. The Food Fight is a program that has paid off the outstanding student lunch debt in Broward County. The county I went to school in. Most counties have this debt, it prevents some students from getting a full nutritious lunch. The big picture is to make a program that ensures all children get full meals while in school regardless of what is going on at home ( as the Food Fight Founder I must shameless plug it here https://neighbors4neighbors.org/food-fight ).
My goals are to be a better human, remember that there is no fun in knowing everything and one day, I hope to have an open tab to Anthropology.
So hello. Nice to meet you. Let’s make this friendship official and say hi back @AshleyO2Go and catch me on 104.3 The Shark every weekday from 3-7pm
