Year Founded


How it Started

Ashley Ortega was drawn to business ownership as a way to be more present for her daughter. In 2021, she opened Tiny Bear Paws, a childcare business in Lompoc.

Work with WEV

Ashley came to WEV through our partnership with Children’s Resource and Referral network of Santa Barbara. She took  our Emprendimiento course and said, “The classes I took from WEV helped me so much in so many different areas of my business. I am still a new business owner, so it’s been a tough and sometimes stressful navigation for me. WEV helped me feel more confident in running a business” 

What’s Next

Ashley is very grateful to have connected with the CRR network and is excited to continue growing her business.  


“WEV helped me feel more confident in running a business.”
