Nashville native, Ashley Hayden has a curious mind and a desire to create. With experience in all areas of both the visual and performing arts, Ashley came into design and marketing with a love for all things art.
Although originally a dance education major, she graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. in journalism from Belmont University and a concentration in the visual arts. She first gained interest in marketing through an internship with American Songwriter Magazine and continued involvement while curating, maintaining and producing content for WKRN.com, Nashville News 2.
Ashley worked two jobs all through college and gained 7 years of experience in the retail and customer service industry. As a visual merchandiser, she gained valuable hands on experience working with marketing materials and acquired insight from customers in real time. Ashley continued her work in customer service as an assistant manager for the YWCA's resale boutique, 2616, where she helped coordinate efforts to grow the boutique customer base and used her strengths in social media, marketing, and visual merchandising to raise brand awareness.
With customer service experience, a degree in writing, and years of experience in the arts, Ashley is lucky to be able to utilize all three in her position as Creative Director. She loves this city and is thrilled to be a part of what Infinity has to offer Nashville.
