She also has abundant experience teaching ESL to children and adults.
Ashley is a proud Utahn with a passion for nature that growing up in the mountains can instill. She loves anything that will get her outside; which includes hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, snowskiing, waterskiing, etc.
While she loves extreme sports she is drawn to activities that allow her to slow down. She has recently jumpstarted her yoga practice and loves to spend quiet time at home reading or crafting. She can crochet a mean beanie….
Ashley is excited to be at Fusion and to share her passion for learning with her students.
