Miss Ashley is a Western Colorado native who returned here to raise a family after living in Chicago, Florida and Georgia. Her background is in theatre, classical ballet and the arts, but she always found herself drawn to work with children. While pursuing a degree in theatre performance, Ashley stumbled upon an article on Waldorf education and was so inspired by the philosophy that she decided to wholeheartedly pursue the field of education. Ashley studied Elementary Education at Western Governors University and received her LifeWays certification (an Early Childhood Waldorf-inspired training) in 2014.
