Her creative dream

As a child, she admired her father’s architectural creative work, and even though her career took a business turn, her interests lie in creating and developing new products, ideas, services, and business models. Ashley Lightspeed’s fascination for creative work while growing up had her attending summer camps for young designers, and from there she learned a principle that she continues to apply in her work till today; ‘measure twice, cut once.’
