Ashley Borders was born and raised in the Deep South, attended Savannah Country Day School and graduated with an academic scholarship from Wofford College, but she has lived and worked all over the United States as well as Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. After years of living abroad, Ashley realized she wanted to move back home to Georgia and raise her son, Izzy, in a manner similar to her own childhood. Ashley has been back in Savannah for about three years and is trying to navigate her unique family dynamic while building a creative empire in a community that doesn’t always have space for forward thinkers. Ashley is an actress, stylist, and creative director and has owned three different clothing lines. She started her first clothing line, House of Borders, at 16 years old and has continued to design and manufacture her own fashion collections. Although she is a glamorous and chic woman, Ashley is free-spirited and not afraid to get her hands dirty, working day in and day out to build a strong, stable foundation for herself and Izzy, who she asserts is the greatest and most rewarding gift her life has given her.
