Rise and Thrive Inc. feat. in Loudoun Times Mirror


Ashley Lucas and Ashley Koranteng, Founders and CEOs of Rise and Thrive Inc., were both featured on the front page of the Loudoun Times Mirror physical and e-newspaper in August 2020. Loudoun Times Mirror introduces the founders as “Ashleys in Action.”

Loudoun Times Mirror has produced local journalism for two centuries within one of the fastest growing counties in America. 

Per Loudoun Times Mirror, 

“The Times-Mirror has been awarded “Best Large Weekly” in the state by the prestigious Virginia Press Association six times this decade. It is the only countywide newspaper, and the advertising results speak for themselves. A recent survey by the University of Virginia showed more than 71 percent of county residents take their news from the Times-Mirror.”

As a Sterling, VA resident, Ashley Koranteng and Ashley Lucas from Long Island, NY found honor and pleasure highlighting the plan for Rise and Thrive to thrive despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
