Meet Our Founder

Veronica Ashley-Reid

I’m Veronica Ashley-Reid, the creator of AG Financial Methodology, AG SEED Initiative,  and founder of Autonomous Growth. After managing millions of dollars for the U.S. Army Chaplains funds, coordinating and executing healing space like retreats, and helping support our units religious needs for nearly 10 years— I saw the need for change. With the desire to learn and live more freely, I strive to create safe spaces and self-growth tools that I can share with others. I believe that financial growth through livable solutions and action plans is vitally connected to my main focus on yogas’ inner healing -- both leading you to  seek a deeper connection with Self and outer tune-ups. My primary focuses are veterans, women, and young adults that are looking to transition out of the military and into a healthier lifestyle including entrepreneurship. Browse our site to learn more, we offer Veterans Transition and Youth & Adult Business Growth Coaching, retreats and travel experience, and spaces to heal through movement (yoga).

Danii Oliver

Danii Oliver, owner of Island to Island Brewery & Navy Daughter: Danii’s brewery taproom was named the most welcoming taproom in all of New York after years of grinding it out in the big city proving she could build a business on the pioneering concept of serving American diversity with a side of family. Danii is now expanding Island to Island into the Friendly state of Texas as an estate brewery with its own permaculture farm making this farm brewery better able to build on its mission – following the seasons & honoring family tradition – while crafting Indigenous American craft beer alongside non-alcoholic fermented beverages.
