Ashley Colburn is a California native who calls San Diego County home when she is not jet setting around the world. Coming from a family of travelers, Ashley’s desire to travel started at an early age and began in earnest when she studied for a semester in Spain. Ashley navigated the country by train, bus, and plane while she learned the language and also found time for trips to Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and Britain.
After graduating from Colorado State University with a major in technical journalism and a minor in Spanish, Ashley began her career as a host, producer, and writer for Wealth TV in 2009. She produced her first travel show ”WOW Croatia!,” which was awarded Croatia’s Golden Pen Award (Best US Media) and won an Emmy in 2010. Following her success with the Croatia show, Ashley created “TAKEOFF with Ashley Colburn,” a travel series that premiered in 2010 on Wealth TV and took her to more than 25 countries on six continents over two seasons.
Since late 2011, Ashley has run her own production company, Ashley Colburn Productions, with the aim of “Finding the Wonder in the World. Wonderful People. Wonderful Cultures. Wonderful History.” Ashley Colburn Productions filmed “Wonders of Croatia,” a seven-part travel series that covers the main tourist regions of the country as well as “Wonders of Slovenia” in 2012 and “Wonders of Latvia” and “Wonders of Switzerland” in 2013. These television series produced and hosted by Ashley Colburn are being marketed and distributed worldwide. Ashley Colburn Productions also produces and Ashley hosts a new web series through GOGO vacations titled “Paradise Found.”
Ashley Colburn received her second Emmy in 2012 for her work in “Wonders of the World: Machu Picchu.” Her production of “TAKEOFF: Thailand” was awarded a Telly as well as the Silver prize in the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition.
