Each person has a story and it’s finally time for me to tell mine. My story began nearly 30 years ago, but I won’t bore you with all of those details. Let’s get right to the good part with all the fun and fancy details. Here we go!
My name is Ashlee Chesny. I am an author and I am on a mission to make learning exciting and meaningful for historically underprivileged children. I use my children’s books to make traditional learning material come to life. In fact, by using my children’s books to create educational programming, I help to engage and re-engage children in the learning process. All of my work with children is done through the nonprofit I founded called Genius Patch. Through Genius Patch, I am known as “Mrs. Ashlee”. My work with children has won both myself an award and my nonprofit an award for my signature programming. Because of these noble missions, I have been called a literary super hero and the author with a heart of gold. I love both of those titles and feel honored to have them.

For the past 4 years, I have been fully immersed in developing Genius Patch. I thought that it was the full extent of me living in my purpose. When I left my corporate job in 2013 and started doing children’s programming in 2015, I was sure that serving children was all that I was meant to do. But, in 2018, I discovered that serving children with my innovative educational programming was only part of the equation. Through a series of randomly aligned experiences, I found a passion for serving women of color. My goal is to help them find their purpose and assist them in creating the life of their dreams. To serve women, I have a hosts of speaking topics, upcoming women’s events and writing my first nonfiction (non-children’s) book. I am so excited about the opportunity to serve women of color because we are so much to everyone else. It’s time that we are something to ourselves.
I believe by working with these two, often very overlooked, groups so many cycles of internal hopelessness will be broken. My mission is for both of these groups to have an endless spring of self-worth and a zealousness to live their dreams. I am truly blessed to be able to live my purpose each day with love, laughter and a dreamer’s heart. Everyone should have the same opportunity to do so. I am honored to share my journey with you and hope that I inspire yours. Welcome to my site and my story.
