Ashley is originally from Brainerd, MN. She attended Concordia College in Moorhead, and graduated with a degree in Healthcare Leadership and Long-Term Care Administration. After college, Ashley spent a year in Billings, Montana as an Administrative Intern at a long-term care organization called St. John’s United. Montana is absolutely beautiful and she definitely did her fair share of hiking in the mountains!

 Ashley enjoys spending summer weekends in Brainerd with her family and friends at the lake, and one of her favorite summer activities is going fishing with her dad. Her family has two dogs named Risto and Stella who both love to go on walks. In her free time, Ashley watches the show “Friends,” likes doing yoga, or going for a run.

“I am super excited to be a part of the team here at Ecumen Centennial House and I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone!”
