Welcome! I'm Ashley Warren, and I'm an experienced, versatile researcher. Whether it's sleuthing through old, dusty books, or accessing hard-to-find databases, I'm your one-stop-shop for research!
I received my Master of Arts in Literacy Studies, with an emphasis on research science, from the University of Nevada, Reno. As an undergraduate, I studied English Literature and French, and conducted research abroad in London, England, and Istanbul, Turkey. Travel inspires much of my work.
I approach research with more than ten years of experience in library science, journalism, writing and academia. As a mixed-methods researcher, I use a variety of tools and sources for every project.

Let's get started! Here are the services I offer:
(Don't see what you need? Contact me and let's chat!)
Let's create a unique, custom research plan for your book or story. No matter the topic or setting, I will investigate and fact-check the people, places, dates and societies that are part of your stories, so you can focus on the writing.
Need quick stats for a blog post or infographic? Want data-driven content that converts? I can also write engaging white papers and reports tailored to your company and industry.
I will serve as a personal guide through your history. We'll compile your family tree and delve into the historical settings in which your relatives lived, so you can have a fuller picture of who you are and where you come from.
Data is a vital component of a successful business, so let an expert take care of it. I'll conduct focus groups, explore industry trends, and analyze internal data, so you can be on the cutting edge.
APA style, MLA style, Chicago style, CSE style — what?! I can help check your sources and citations, assist with bibliographies and works cited pages, access articles from paywalled journals, and more.
Need to understand the demographics of your organization and its impact? I'll conduct community-based studies and design comprehensive reports for stakeholders.
