Ashley has been the Children's Pastor at Shepherd since 2015. Ashley has a heart for reaching families with children. She leads the K-5th grade children's worship services on Sunday mornings. 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 14+ years.
