Ashley Jacobs is an on-air lifestyle and entertainment expert with more than a dozen years of television news experience. She is a Senior Account Executive at ChicExecs, yet prior to joining that team, she was a full-time lifestyle and entertainment reporter in San Diego. She made a name for herself as an award-winning news anchor in markets coast to coast including California, North Carolina and Georgia, all while raising two children. During the little free time she has, Ashley soaks up every minute she can with her son and daughter, she loves hiking and denies watching her favorite reality tv shows (including every Real Housewife franchise). Ashley enjoys hosting events and is an ambassador for Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, the San Diego Zoo and loves supporting momprenuers!

As a single mom, motherhood proves to be challenging, yet rewarding every single day. Ashley’s mom used to tell her that as a parent you quickly learn the days are long, but the years fly by. She takes great joy in seeing her children grow – both physically and emotionally! She enjoys watching their personalities develop and loves to see them discover their talents. Her daughter has been bit by the acting bug and her son is thriving on his football team. In the earlier years of motherhood, she was married to a Marine Corps Officer. He was often deployed, traveling or working long hours. Though she was married, she often felt like a single mom then too. She was also the main anchor for a morning show in North Carolina – waking up at 1:30am and getting camera-ready with two children 2 and under was… it was interesting to say the least! She suffered from sleep deprivation and put self-care on the back burner. It wasn’t until recent years that she truly learned how important it is to care for one’s self before caring for those around you.

If we’re not healthy as parents, we can’t possibly be the best parents we’re meant to be.
