SARAH ASHMAN, PUBLIC PERSONA

“Yasi is a unicorn. She has a rare cannot-be-taught gift: the ability to see below the surface-level of your brand to unearth a message and story that’s an expression of your soul.”

She has a rare cannot-be-taught gift…

Lauren Anderson & Rachel Bridgwood,
 Sweet Root Village

She had us laughing the entire time...

“She put into words and brought to life something we’d been unable to recognize and create ourselves. We were drawn to Yasi's fresh take on life AND her particularly honest personality, knowing that we didn't JUST need a cheerleader –– we needed someone who could whip us into shape and keep us on track, pulling from us what was needed in order to unravel the messages we didn't know we had in us. As a huge plus, she had us laughing the entire time.” 

Erika Lyremark, the daily whip

She just gets it...

“Yasi makes my job easy: I have a lot of viewpoints and ideas in this teenage girl brain of mine and she just gets it. She’s a progressive thinker, a fun yet intelligent, worldly, and up-to-date writer, who helps me get my thoughts down on paper in a way that can be translated to my audience coherently and in my voice. She has the best taste in TV shows and she’s bossy. You’ll love working with her.”

Like an untapped well spilling over, she throws genius ideas and concepts out left and right. You just have to be ready to catch them. And while she's a dreamer with big plans for her clients, she has the methodology and acuity of a scientist in her approach to creating a message that sings. 

Brand Storyteller & Copywriter SELF-PROCLAIMED VOICE MODISTE

I’m Yasi. I know it’s hard to pronounce, but here’s a helpful hint: it’s I SAY backwards and as you’ll come to find, I’m a not-so-traditional and unapologetically vocal (read: I won ‘loudest’ for my high school superlative) brand storyteller and copywriter...so yes, my name is distinctly #onbrand. 

I work closely with creatives - like you - to define their brand voice, messaging, and storytelling strategy. I’m quite the sassafras, though self-proclaimed, and I regularly get thanked for my persistence (or gentle nudging, if you will). 

I’m not here to change you, sway you, or impose my style on you. 

I’m here to help you step into your true self and personality, fully. 

...To fearlessly unleash your thoughts, opinions, and experiences from your vast inner world for others to see. To connect you with your audience so you can share your gifts and the pearls they’ve long been waiting for.

You’ve followed the advice and done your due diligence.

“I stopped trying to blend in. Now I do the work I want to do, the way I want to do it. Turns out that's what my clients wanted all along. Someone real. Someone who is confident in their own service and client experience.  After working with Yasi, I doubled my prices and bookings. I wish I would have started with Yasi, because once you have a good foundation for your business...it's easy to build the rest.” 

After working with her, I doubled my prices and bookings...

Hannah Lowery, EDGES WILD STUDIO

I feel seen and known and valued and challenged every time we interact...

“Yasi is a wellspring of ideas and observations that cut the clutter and always, without fail, get down to the heart of the issue. She has an incredibly incisive mind, and her straight-talk comes from a deep well of belief in the person she is talking to. I feel seen and known and valued and challenged every time we interact. Working with her has been truly transformational.”

Suzzanne Gamboa, Siembra Studios


Knows just the right amount of nudge to get you to embrace your unique self...


“Yasi is a word wizard. She has this unique capability of taking all my rants and combining them into a cohesive thread of words. Time and time again, I say to myself “she just gets me.” Yasi is compassionate, candid, and knows just the right amount of nudge to get you to embrace your unique self.

MY STORYTELLING PHILoSOPHY

Storytelling is weaved into the very fabric of our identity. It’s the sum of our individual and collective experiences, words, and emotions. It’s the core language of connection - a timeless form of authentic communication.

And while most trends fade with the seasons, our stories stand the test of time. 

They're ever-evolving as each of us comes to experience life through our own personal lens - a lens that’s been formed by our cultures, beliefs, tastes and talents, experiences, trials and tribulations, and so much more. It’s no secret, then, that with each iteration of a story, spoken or written, comes boundless opportunity to connect with others and align with our life’s purpose.



My Studio Approach

Human-first, soul-forward, and gut-led. 

Hand-in-hand, with a light frolic, we --- just kidding, but certainly not too far from the truth. With a colorfully diverse group of artists, scientists, storytellers, lyricists, and poets in my corner, I promise you an out-of-the-box experience.  

My raison d'être is to guide you in the process of sharing your creativity, so you can connect with your perfect-fit people and book the clients who were always meant to be. 



And despite what you may have been told, 
Your voice matters. Your message matters.
Your story matters.

My Personality Assessment, According to the Experts

Play is required, laughter is welcomed. I like coloring outside the lines and introducing wildcards…

Make it bold. Make it you. 




My Vibe

Good thoughts, good words, good deeds.

In short:
All colors, races, shapes, gender identities, sexual orientations, special needs, and experiences are celebrated.
