Ashley Simpo

Ashley Simpo is a digital content, social media strategist, freelance writer, and mother of one based in Brooklyn, New York. She’s also the founder of The Mothership, a weekly newsletter that opens up the discussion on topics we don’t normally build conversations around.



Mater Mea is a website that tells the stories of women at the intersection of motherhood and career. Launched in 2012, the site offers a more realistic depiction of Black women in the many spaces they occupy: as mothers, daughters, employees and employers, lovers, and friends.
