Ashley has been the Children's Pastor at Shepherd since 2016. Ashley has a heart for reaching families with children. She leads the K-5th grade children's worship services on Sunday mornings and disciples children in their small groups on Wednesday nights. She also equips and oversees the preschool and nursery ministries with the help of a dedicated staff of volunteers.
Ashley grew up in Whitehall, Ohio. She came to church because a crazy substitute teacher invited her to Vacation Bible School. As a teenager, she gave her heart to the Lord and asked Him to "Clean her from the inside out." She attended Mount Vernon Nazarene University, where she majored in Christian Education: Children's Ministry and minored in Early Childhood Education. Ashley has been involved in full-time ministry for 15+ years.
