Ashley Moss Kurkiewicz
Ashley Moss Kurkiewicz has been in the marketing and events industry for fifteen years. Her early experience included working for small, independently-owned companies in several different sectors, where she learned many facets of how a business is built and run. Ashley served as a Director of Marketing and Event Coordinator for these companies until she branched out on her own. Both of Ashley’s parents are entrepreneurs, so she was born with the desire to work for herself.
Hello Productions began as a one-person company that now includes two full-time and two part-time event and marketing coordinators. It has become one of the top event planning companies in Pittsburgh, PA, recognized year after year with awards based on their outstanding customer satisfaction and wedding planning services.
Working with a business coach helped Ashley transition from working for someone else to working for herself. She now wants to pay it forward and help others who may be uncertain about how to navigate their career and do something they are passionate about. “It is a leap of faith that will be a lot easier if you have someone to help you land gracefully on the other side!”
A native resident of Meadville, PA, Ashley currently resides in Raleigh, NC with her husband, Justin, and their daughters, Skye & Aubrey. Ashley enjoys all aspects of health and fitness as well as theatre, dance, boating, and of course, planning events!
