Ashley grew up just a stone's throw away in Columbia, MD and graduated from McDaniel College in Westminster, MD (after a solid cheerleading career...Go Green Terrors!). She attended The Well back in the early days of gathering weekly in Matt and Courtney's basement, leading the launch of the first community group serving a low-income Title I school. After working several years as an editor and writer, she moved to Dallas, TX to complete a Master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary with a focus on media arts and creative writing.
In January 2017, Ashley waved goodbye to the Dallas Cowboys fans and began working for The Well Community Church (as a Ravens fan). She loves the intersection of faith and creativity. If lost, you can find her scribbling an essay in her journal about the beauty of Italian churches, or slalom skiing at her family's lake house in North Carolina.
