Ashley grew up in Minnesota but the mountains and active outdoor lifestyle encouraged her to relocate to Colorado in 2009. While living in Minnesota, she graduated from the University of Minnesota- Crookston with an A.A.S in Equine Science. After training horses for several years, she decided to pursue veterinary medicine and became a CVT in 2008 from Globe University. Many rewarding years of private practice led her to focus on her passion for surgery and anesthesia. She then joined the surgical team at AMVS in 2015. In her free time, Ashley loves to take advantage of all that Colorado has to offer with her husband. They enjoy many adventures together and especially love hiking 14ers, camping, alpine skiing, and rock climbing.
