Ashley grew up in the suburbs of Chicago where she began riding and showing hunters and jumpers. In 2006, she started her career in the veterinary field by working for several small animal clinics. She graduated from Murray State University in 2011 with a bachelors in Animal Health Technology and a minor in Equine Science. From there, she decided to focus mainly on horses and has worked at equine hospitals such as Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital and Park Equine Hospital in Lexington, KY and Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center in Northern Virginia.
Ashley began working for Virginia Equine in June 2014 as a Licensed Veterinary Technician as Dr. Daniels assistant. She really enjoys the ambulatory field and her favorite part of the job is diagnostic imaging, lameness, and that each call is something different.
In her spare time she really enjoys riding horses, spending time with her boyfriend, Casey, and two dogs Harvey and Tank, doing things outdoors, skiing, traveling, and starting her photography business, Ashley Nicole Photography.
