Ashley was born and raised in Washington state and moved to Iowa in May of 2022. She now lives in Des Moines with her boyfriend, 6 year old daughter, and cat. She has always had a passion for animals but primarily has the greatest love for cats! She got her veterinary assisting certificate through Sno-Isle Skills Center in High School of 2015, and then started working as a vet assistant in an ER after graduation. She has 9 years of experience with ER and surgery, and decided to jump on the opportunity to work in a regular practice for the first time. She is looking forward to expanding her knowledge of vet medicine and pushing towards her goals of someday getting her Veterinary Technician license. In her free time, she loves to spend time with her daughter or finding a good book to read. She loves the outdoors, traveling to Hawaii as often as she can, and walking through Hobby Lobby for fun.
