Ashley Stafford has been a teacher and producer of events and festivals for over 12 years. These events include May Flora Fest, various roles in Return to Roots Gathering, FreeForm Arts Festival, Fahrenheit Flow Arts Festivals (pre and post FAI Ownership), as well as minor roles in various other festivals. Being a survivor was not easy while participating in these events and throughout the years Ashley developed friends that held similar views when it came to consent. In this time she has had a close relationship to consent and explaining it to clients through her private orthopedic massage practice of 13 years. Through all of the ups and downs that come with production she found herself with some amazing friends who founded Consent Culture Initiative.
Joining the CCI team in late 2018 she has become dedicated to helping create the foundation of a solution oriented, community driven, organization. Ashley enjoys creating courses for CCI, participating in forums, and collaborating with like minded folk. She is the Executive Director and handles a lot of the behind the scenes stuff such as website development, SEO, Course platform structure, Legal matters, communication with our editors & legal team, emails, and supporting the incredible Gina! Ashley Stafford has a Private Orthopedic Practice in Philadelphia PA as well as a small consulting agency called Tranquil Business Solutions and brings both of those skills into CCI. As we grow keep an eye out for workshops led by Ashley!
