Ashley Hart Behlen
“Patient” Technical Support & “Down to Earth” Web Designer
Hi, I’m Ashley Hart Behlen (married, but still kept Hart as my middle name, I just love that part of my name). I am the face and human behind Breathe and Delegate with Ashley (formerly known as Virtual Ashley Hart). I pride myself on being open-minded, patient and down to earth. My sister (in her maid of honor speech at my wedding) described me as a country living, crunchy hippie who loves order, flow and inner peace. That’s pretty accurate and literally made me laugh out loud.
I truly feel like I have found my calling with my business and my ability to use my gifts to help others. It sounds cheesy, but I feel like this is part of my life purpose. I want to be more than just your technical support, but a partner and friend in your business and life (as we all know these two are not separate but delicately intertwined). We are all human and I truly believe that we are here to learn lessons, love, and share joy with the world. My clients often say that I’m part therapist and part technology consultant. Some days, you just need someone to talk to about your business, where it’s going, how it should be organized, and other days you need someone to help you get through the fear and doubt that’s holding you back from expanding.
I want to be more than just someone you call when you have a problem, but an active participant. The more I understand your business and your pain points, the more I can come up with solutions to solve them. I regularly come up with solutions, value-added services for your business, and help streamline your processes and procedures.
“If you really want to grow as an entrepreneur, you’ve got to learn to delegate.”
– Richard Branson
I am a self-taught web designer, always learning new things and a lifelong student of the school of life. I am trained in Website Design & Development, Online Course Development, Graphic Design, Social Media Marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Online Reviews/Reputation Management, Website Optimization (Performance, Speed, Loading Time), Virtual Meeting Facilitation and Minutes (Zoom, Skype), Virtual/Cloud Collaboration, and so much more (and I’m always learning)! I don’t list specific tools that I know how to use because I’m confident that I can learn what you are using or find something new for your specific industry or issue. I love learning and using my knowledge to help your business.

“No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit.”
– Andrew Carnegie
I have always been the go-to technology guru in every office I have worked in, as well as the community technology expert within my family and friend circles. I thrive on patiently helping others better understand technology and use it in a way to improve communication, enhance efficiency and time management, and have more inner peace.
Present for my client’s needs
In order to stay present with myself and my clients, I love to spend my time doing yoga (sometimes the hot sweaty kind), meditation, swimming, and spending time in nature. I live in the foothills of Central California and you can often see sunrises and sunsets on my social media platforms (yep~ That’s my backyard).
My formal higher education includes a Bachelor’s Dual Degrees in Public Health and Media Studies from the University of California, Berkeley (Go Bears!!) and a Master’s in Public Administration from California State University, Dominguez Hills.
I look forward to connecting with you.

Kind Words From My Lovely Clients
I would not have been able to move forward with my new business of online courses without Ashley’s expertise.
I have never had a virtual assistant before and I didn’t think I would like it. But I have found Ashley to be more efficient than my previous in person assistants.
I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone!
Ashley meets deadlines and keeps you moving in the right directions. She helps me putting together my work/deck sales letter because I could not get there by myself.
There is a sense of relief knowing my expectations are being met.
It has been a pleasure working with you on developing my website. Your website design and development skills are top notch. You created a very user-friendly website for my customers. I didn’t have any worries. I would recommend your services any day. You have very good ideas for my website and my business.
