Ashley is curious–endlessly curious to understand the “why” behind people and their ideas.
Her curiosity has led her into all sorts of adventures, many of which have included traveling and living in foreign lands. It has also helped her succeed in both sales and innovation. She has spent most of her 20-plus- year career in sales working with global companies to inspire collaboration and innovation. She is always thinking of new ways to solve a problem or create something captivating: whether leading local high schoolers to deliver knock-out TEDx Talks, convening Boston-area thought leaders around a dinner table, or helping global technology firms delight their customers. Ashley holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan.
Justin is happiest helping people navigate complex problems.
Whether it’s tech sales professionals seeking to coax the world’s largest companies toward digital transformation, or a group of engineers extending the life of nuclear reactors as part of a carbon-neutral play to save our planet, he enjoys helping teams step outside of their status quo into insight and breakthrough.
He finds the methods of Design Thinking particularly compelling because of its human-centered principles, which recognize that we all simultaneously crave our comfort zone and the thrill of novelty. His wheelhouse is helping others find their footing in navigating that paradox, and that’s why he co-founded Somersault Innovation with Ashley Welch. Their work is elevating the capacity of sales and problem solving teams, mostly within the Fortune 500.
