Great Local Coverage

I love Ashley’s podcast. I always learn something new about our area and the people that make St. Andrews and surrounding area such a great place to live and work.

Ashley Feller run in.

I saw Ashley playing the flute with the 4th Street Band at Little Village. I thought she was so amazing that I sent a video of her to an Orchestra flautist that I know in Pensacola. But that’s beside the point. She gave me her business card and nearly a week latter I listened to one of her Podcast. Amazing again! She’s got her finger on the pulse of St. Andrew Bay, love this girl!
