Ashley's Fulfilling Her Dream
Ashley knew she was destined to help people in third grade after viewing an actual surgery on TV with her classmates. “I just knew I wanted to help people and becoming a nurse seemed like a great path to fulfill that dream.”
Ashley attained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from University of Cincinnati in 2009 as well as degrees in the science of nursing from Cincinnati State in 2012 and the Ohio University in 2014, plus a Master of Science in Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner from Northern Kentucky University 2020. You might call Ashley an overachiever!
Before recently joining Lung Center of America, she worked for 12 years as a Pediatric Nurse in emergency medicine. She is also currently working as an Adjunct Nursing Faculty for two local colleges as well as a Nurse Practitioner at LCOA.
Ashley is passionate about nutrition and genetics. She has always been intrigued by how eating and exercise collectively affects a person's wellness and co-morbidities. She’s even studied nutrition and genetics in different cultures around the world to better understand how she can guide and help people to live healthy happy life. That philosophy weaves perfectly into the overall mission at LCOA. Ashley states, “I love spending time with patients, answering their questions, and helping them live out the best and healthiest versions of themselves.”
At LCOA, she is using her passion, knowledge, and understanding to help people navigate through the current COVID environment.
Ashley is a very active Mom to 2 girls: a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old. She and her husband of 11 years, along with the kids, head outside as much as they can to stay healthy and enjoy the fresh air. You’ll find them on the trails and in the parks around the greater Cincinnati region.
