Ashley was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago. She spent her entire life in Chicago minus 2 years in Milwaukee where she attended Marquette University. Ashley earned her BA from Governors State University where she studied Psychology and developed her passion for working with individuals struggling with mental illness. Ashley has worked in both inpatient and residential settings and she still provides therapeutic yoga for those struggling with eating disorders.
As the Director of Admissions and Outreach at our Lincoln Park campus, Ashley thrives to develop the most intentional connections with professionals in the community in order to support our students struggling with mental illness, learning differences and any of life’s challenges. Ashley holds a strong belief that our journeys are far from linear, but with the right kind of academic, social and emotional support, anyone can be the best version of themselves!
Ashley loves painting, running, yoga and walking her dachshund, Lord Webster. She is excited to be a part of the Lincoln Park community and utilize her passion and kind spirit to serve the Lincoln Park campus!
