Ashley began her work experience in Eau Claire in early childhood education. After two years Ashley decided to return to Madison to be closer to family, especially so she could watch her four younger siblings grow. For four years she taught in Early Childhood. She started as a float staff member, then she transitioned to being a lead teacher for a 2-3 year-old classroom. Ashley’s end goal had always been to work with children with special needs and help them grow and develop. So, she decided to take a leap and move to working with children with autism, providing behavioral therapy for two years. Ashley believes that you should love what you do, and working with children, helping them make progress, is a great passion for her! Ashley is excited to be a support for families while they establish services at CI and throughout the process. In her free time, Ashley can be found exploring the outdoors with her dog, enjoying time with family, and looking for a new adventure.
