Ashia R. Sims is a Social Media/Content Strategist by trade, storyteller and technology enthusiast by design. Her path to the field of digital strategy started when she landed at Florida A&M University to pursue her interest in the creative side of business. She found herself in the world of journalism and public relations. Upon graduation, she was able to transfer her public relations, project management and event planning skills over to the world of television and film production where she worked for over 10 years.

While following her passion for video production and content creation, Ashia continued to explore her love of writing and technology. Since 2003, she provided freelance commercial writing services, launched and maintained a style blog and co-wrote two scripted projects while learning about the world of internet marketing and how to share her passions online.
