Producer of Plus-Sized World
Ashley Reitz is an international curve model who got her start at the age of 19 with Elite Models in Chicago. After reaching a level of success working with clients such as Saks Fifth, Avon, Seventeen Magazine as well as shooting with renowned photographers like Russell James she decided to share the good, the bad and the ugly of what it’s REALLY like as a curvy girl in a skinny obsessed industry. She knows what it’s like to be called fat on set, have every inch of your body scrutinized, and yet because of this knows it’s her calling to discover and inspire confidence in women. Her greatest passion is sharing her motivational life story of success, struggles and the battle of working in the modeling, television, and beauty industries. Most currently, she stars on the new FOX dating series “Coupled”. She is working on writing her first book, enjoys motivational speaking, and is excited to be working on producing television projects with Maven Films and Lionsgate!
One of four children, Ashley is a proud Midwestern girl born and raised in Michigan. Her dream as a child was to become two things, a hairstylist and model. She has done that and so much more! After attending cosmetology school she jumped right into full time modeling. A self proclaimed beauty addict and makeup fanatic, Ashley has remained close to the beauty industry alongside modeling and incorporates this into her message for young women of the importance of inner beauty and how it relates to outer beauty.
Outspoken about her faith, this is what draws many to Ashley and her way of speaking. “My life has not been perfect,” she says and admits to the utmost importance of keeping it real with herself and others. “I’ve experienced what it’s like to absolutely hate myself, hate my life, and want out. I also know what it’s like to have that completely turn around and learn to love myself, love my life and I want nothing more than to share that with others. It’s all because of my faith and God’s work in my life.”
