Premiering early 2017!

At the age of 27, Ashley Maria did what many other up-and-coming millennial women do: she started to burn out. This is a phenomena that has experts guessing as to why, and what to do about it.

Pioneers in Skirts™ is a documentary following what happens when career ambitions plummet soon after a woman graduates from college. The film explores the “why” and finds “solutions” we all can implement.

The film is for women who are experiencing setbacks as they are pioneering their career paths, for the allies who support them, and for the next generation of girls who want to grow up being anything they want.
