Hi! I'm Ashley. Fellow risk taker, adventHERer, traveler, and founder of Risk and Reward.

Risk and Reward was born during my time as a solo traveler. I realized I wanted to provide adventure essentials to my fellow travelers. To hopefully empower, inspire and prepare you to take that first step outside your comfort zone. No matter how big or small. 

This idea has 3 parts. 

1. I want to use my background in product development to provide high quality adventure essentials in the easiest way possible. I found myself ill prepared on many trips so I want to provide a way to help eliminate that for others. 

2. I want to offer a gift for travelers. At times I'd get travel "inspired" gifts that weren't practical or useful. So why not make it easy for someone to get a gift built by a traveler, for a traveler!

3. Help other AdventHERers and Entrepreneurs. 

I didn't mean to start my business right before a pandemic caused us to stop traveling, but timing is everything. I learned so much about being a solo entrepreneur and how to find adventure in my own backyard. 

I hope you'll join me on this journey to continue to take risks. For rewards come to those who take the risk. 

Much Love, 


This was taken 3 days before I took my biggest risk and made a dream come true by moving to Taiwan solo!
