Actress, humanitarian and celebrity guest speaker for hire Ashley Judd is the daughter of famed country singer Naomi Judd and the sister of singer Wynonna Judd. Ashley has made a name for herself as an Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress appearing in featured films and TV shows such as Kiss the Girls, De-Lovely, Norma Jean & Marilyn and recently appearing in the latest 2 installments of The Divergent Series films. As a celebrated actress, Ashley has used her influential voice as a catalyst for global social and environmental change.
Ashley got into acting in the early 1990’s, playing small TV and film roles until her first big break with a leading role in Ruby in Paradise in 1993. In 1996, Ashley appeared as Marilyn Monroe in Norma Jean & Marilyn before starring roles in the films Kiss the Girls and Double Jeopardy that solidified her successful career as an actress. She has continued to star in films and TV shows and has been praised for her latest film role as Natalie Prior in Divergent and its sequel, Insurgent.
Yet her work as an actress is only part of her life story. Ashley has a deep caring nature for others and has gone out of her way to leave the world a more positive place than when she entered it. She is now one of the top humanitarian keynote speakers on the circuit having traveled the country and spoken to heads of state, diplomats and world leaders on raising awareness for health and poverty concerns around the world. She has done extensive work with organizations such as YouthAIDS, Women for Women International, Equality Now and the Defenders of Wildlife just to name a few.
Away from her work as an actress, humanitarian and celebrity keynote speaker, Ashley is a huge University of Kentucky Wildcats (her alma mater) basketball fan and is present at a majority of home games each year.
