Having grown up in a rural part of Northern Michigan, Ashley’s parents were determined to make sure she saw more of the world. As a result, Ashley developed a love of travel early in life. Whether it was cross-country family trips, exploring the U.K., or road-tripping to rock shows in Detroit, they were always bound to have an adventure! Later, she attended Michigan State University, and enjoyed a summer abroad in Ireland working toward her Bachelor of Arts in English. She was also fortunate enough to see other European countries while abroad.
After graduation, the need for adventure was still very much alive. Ashley moved to New York City with her dog, Scruffles. She studied Musical Theatre Writing, then left New York to move to Nashville with a Masters of Fine Arts and another rescue dog, Nick.
Since moving to Nashville, Ashley has been able to enjoy the music scene as a drummer and songwriter. And as dogs keep appearing, Ashley keeps rescuing. With the addition of Brover and Jack O’Lantern, the whole dog gang travels together while taking road trips. Realizing the love of adventure would never fade, she joined THIRDHOME as a Member Experience Associate. The fit was perfect and long awaited. Just like playing Rock ‘n’ roll, rescuing dogs, or taking a family trip, here at THIRDHOME, she’s able to not only make every day an adventure, but also, engage with people from all over the world while still experiencing the excitement of travel and helping others.
