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.

We are shining a light on cultural biases and our own individual challenges to help today’s career woman and the next become her own pioneer.
