Ashley graduated in 2018 from the University of Utah with a Master of Social Work. Ashley began working in the substance use disorder field after her own personal struggle with addiction. Ashley became the Resident Manager of Ascends sober living facility for its first five years. It was at this level of care that Ashley found her true passion, helping others fight this deadly disease. In addition to her efforts at Ascend she has worked vigorously to educate the public about the current opioid epidemic, as well as the lifesaving treatments that are available. In doing so, Ashley hopes to provide education to family members and loved ones that may potentially save lives as well as help reduce the stigma surrounding addiction. Ashley has been with Ascend since 2012. Outside of Ascend, Ashley enjoys spending time with her husband and child.
