Ashley was born in the Muskegon area and has always had a special bond with animals since she was a child. After graduating Muskegon Community College in 2018, Ashley moved down to Florida for a year. In Florida she achieved one of her lifelong dreams of working with big cats such as lions, leopards, tigers, and even a liger(Lion/tiger mix). In 2020 Ashley moved back to Michigan and continued her passion with animals as a receptionist at Glenpark Animal Hospital. On her free time, Ashley spends her time with her cats, Ace & Winston, playing with her dog, Asiago, painting, listening to music, or finding adventures everywhere she goes.
