Ashley is an Erie native who graduated from Strong Vincent High School in 2012 with a desire to travel and see new things. Ashley attended the prestigious ivy league HBCU, Dillard University located in New Orleans, LA, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Public Health with a focus in healthcare administration and minored in biology. She then came back to her hometown and began teaching 7th-12th grade math and science at Community Country Day School. While teaching, she decided to pursue her master’s degree in healthcare administration at LECOM. Graduating from LECOM in 2021 with a 4.0, she took on a new role that allowed her to be more involved in the community. Ashley became the Youth Service Coordinator at Youth Leadership Institute of Erie, where she headed many different service-learning projects, some involving over 300 children in the community. She is now attending LECOM again working on her Doctorate in Healthcare Administration, which she will finish in 2024.

Ashley has a passion for providing children from underserved communities with opportunities for a brighter future. She is dedicated to removing barriers that may detour them from seeking higher education opportunities and being a part of that “village” that is needed to raise a child. She is a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated, as well as one of the John F Kennedy Center Board of Directors.
