Ashley Rhodes-Courter's 2024 biography

Meet Ashley Rhodes-Courter

Since her first National Keynote at age 14, Ashley Rhodes-Courter has shared her story with thousands in the United States and in over 7 countries.

Ashley Rhodes-Courter was born to a single teen mother. By the age of 3 she was in Florida’s foster care system where she spent almost ten years being shuttled between 14 homes—some quite abusive—before being adopted from a Children’s Home at the age of twelve.

Despite her ordeal, she excelled in school because she believed that “my education was the one thing nobody could take from me.” Early in her life she felt compelled to advocate for herself and the other children she lived with, particularly in the abusive foster homes.

Her efforts and academic achievements landed her Eckerd College’s Trustee Scholarship where she graduated early, with honors, earning a double major in Communications and Theater and a double minor in Political Science and Psychology. Ashley then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California.

During her undergraduate studies, she was one of 20 college students selected for the USA Today All-USA Academic Team and was named one of GLAMOUR Magazine’s Top Ten College Women. She was also selected as one of the four Golden BR!CK Award winners for outstanding advocacy for community change by DoSomething!. As part of their campaign, she was featured on 25 million bags of Cool Ranch Doritos. Ashley has received State, local, and national awards for her speaking, advocacy, and philanthropy. She has spoken on Capitol Hill and has been invited to the White House twice. Her largest audience was a sold-out arena of over 20,000.

By the age of 22, Ashley had become a New York Times Bestselling Author. Her first book, “Three Little Words” is now an International Bestseller and has been published in at least 4 countries. Her second book, “Three More Words” debuted at #1 on Amazon Bestseller’s List. Both books are used in classrooms across the country in various community and First Year Experience Collegiate programs. “Three Little Words” is now being made into a major motion picture.

In December 2021, Ashley was one of 10 incredibly inspiring women showcased on the televised special on NBC for their amazing “Women of Worth” work by L’Oreal Paris, honoring the intrinsic worth of everyday women inspiring others and creating positive change in their communities. Ashley has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, Today Show, New York Times, USA Today, Women’s World Magazine, Roadtrip Nation, GLAMOUR Magazine and many more top global outlets.

Three Little Words

What three little words could change your life? In her most-requested Keynote, Ashley Rhodes-Courter, LCSW, shares her personal story of survival, breaking barriers, and beating the odds. Ashley spent nearly a decade in the foster care system as a child and experienced extreme child abuse and neglect. Today, she is an award-winning New York Times Bestselling Author and CEO. Laugh, cry, and be motivated by her first-hand experiences and unique expertise.

Helping the Helpers

Preventing burnout, techniques to help with stress, anxiety, tragedies, and disappointments. What is and isn’t self-care, advocating for yourself and others, perfect for those whose jobs or volunteer work directly serves others. It only takes ONE person to change the life of another.

Schools as Sanctuaries

School was a sanctuary for Ashley where she was protected and encouraged by teachers and faculty. These unspoken heroes often do not receive the credit they deserve. Ashley’s trainings and keynotes provide content that help educators identify abuse, neglect, bullying, and explore complicated family dynamics. Audiences leave with useful tools and a renewed sense of purpose and passion.

Power of Perspective

Exploring Growth mindset; tapping into potential; what’s a big problem vs little problem; understanding ourselves and how we process the world; practical tips for developing a more ptimistic outlook; learning lessons; and encourage audiences to focus on solutions rather than problems. When audiences reframe their circumstances, they will gain skills necessary to navigate challenges with confidence, embrace new opportunities and challenges, learn effective communication strategies, and tips to tackling imposters syndrome.

Be The Change

Adversity, or even trauma, can be a catalyst for growth and transformation. Change is inevitable. Stay relevant and succeed in the workplace and in your home life. You may find yourself leading during pandemics, political volatility, and personal challenges. Ashley helps audiences stay flexible and open-minded during emergencies and shifting cultures. Two devastating plane crashes in Ashley’s family system are just two examples used to help demonstrate how we can turn tragedies into purposeful triumphs.
