My name is Ashley Maready. After spending almost 12 years in nonprofit history, art, and STEM museums, I'm now working full-time as a content and copy editor and writer. I began my formal editing career in July 2021.
My writing work can be viewed at the links below. I write about a variety of personal finance topics for The Ascent, a Motley Fool Blog. I also edit for The Ascent, and I work with both news pieces (like the ones I myself write) and SEO pieces like best-of lists, reviews, and evergreen financial topics explainers. I also write about being childfree and managing finances for Childfree Wealth.
I love to make a fellow writer's work better through my work as an editor. I believe there is no writer who can't benefit from an editor like me; I give kind, constructive, and prompt feedback.
From Natasha Gabrielle (Personal Finance Writer, The Ascent & NerdWallet): "Ashley and I have worked together in a freelance capacity since spring 2022. She is a fantastic editor who is diligent and thorough. She communicates effectively, is considerate when giving feedback, and makes my writing the best it can be. I highly recommend her as an editor."
