Ashley grew up in a small town in Montana and is proud of her country roots, but doesn't miss the long, bitter cold winters!
She has an affinity for target shooting, being outdoors and of course, GRIZ football! Her first TV job was in her hometown of Great Falls as the weekend anchor and military reporter. Most recently, Ashley was an anchor and reporter for KGW's sister station, KREM 2, in Spokane.
Ashley enjoys telling stories and covering the news, but she is most passionate about helping people in her community. While working in Montana, Ashley founded a non-profit that helps military veterans and their families in times of need. In 2011, the Montana National Guard awarded Ashley the highest honor a civilian can receive. Ashley was presented the Distinguished Patriot Medal for her dedication to Montana's military families.
In Spokane, Ashley volunteered her time with Big Brothers Big Sisters and served as emcee for several of the organization's charity events. She was also very active with the Lilac City Chapter of Pearl Harbor Survivors and now considers them her second family.
Ashley and her husband Chris have two dogs and just bought their first home.
