Jackie Ashton is a seasoned freelance writer based in San Francisco. Her writing on health, lifestyle, and education—as well as parenting in the digital age—has appeared in publications like The New York TimesThe Washington Post, Salon and Redbook, among other outlets.

Jackie has also created content marketing and corporate content for startups, colleges, and Fortune 500 companies. She's written a wide range of pieces: from the serious to the ridiculous, from a research-based reported piece for a corporate B2B audience to a whimsical, humorous for a time-starved woman standing in the checkout line. 

She is working on her first book. She would be making more progress on it if there weren't so many ridiculously cute videos of Riley Curry on the internet.
