Meet Your Guide

I’m Ashley, the founder and brand impact strategist behind Citizen Yard.

I built this course after going through the B Corp process for my own business. I struggled to find help and resources focused on assisting small and growing companies. Small companies have unique needs and it seemed as if the existing help solely applied to the big guys — so I figured I would make it myself.

I’ve spent over a year studying B Corp and the B Impact Assessment. The path to B Corp can be a long and overwhelming one. It’s my goal to cut through the overwhelm for you and streamline the process to keep it enjoyable and exciting.

I take care of the confusion so you can focus on using your business to save the world.
