Historia Muse

Listening, talking, collaborating. Renewing, refreshing, rejoicing. Words, pictures, concepts, voices.


Since 1989, Ashworth-Lee Communications has told stories for corporate, institutional, and editorial clients—through brand identity, strategic messaging, and all types of integrated marketing communications. A story is at the heart of what we do, whether it is creating a constituent connection through the story of a cause, developing new business through the story of a company’s expertise, creating a company's “voice” through the stories of its mission, or serving as inspiration for others through the story of one person.

Through highly select strategic partnerships, we offer teams of business and creative services professionals for the full complement of creative and communications services. Ashworth-Lee was founded by Shelley Lee.

Shelley is also the founder of Historia, offering legacy stories to families, businesses, and foundations, and of Muse, an inspiration collaborative.
