Ashley is a native of Georgia, and after graduating with a bachelor of science degree in Psychology from UGA, she began to look for inspiration beyond state borders.  Ashley took a position teaching in Taiwan and quickly realized what a wonderful job it is to work with students. Thus, her career in education began, and an insatiable curiosity for travel and culture was sparked. As it happens, there are teachers and students all over the world – a fact on which Ashley has tried to capitalize. In addition to teaching in Colorado and New York, Ashley has been in classrooms in South Africa, Cambodia, Kenya and Belize. Most recently, Ashley instructed courses in Social Foundations of Education at The University of Georgia while pursuing her Ph.D. Ashley's doctoral dissertation focused on the work of teachers in non-government schools operating in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
