Ashley has been captaining the universe since leaping into the out of this world position in March of 2019. With a B.S. in Biomedical Science from Southeast Missouri State and a future M.A. in Museum Studies/Grad. Cert. in Nonprofit Management from Johns Hopkins, Ashley cannot appreciate enough the combination of her passions found at HealthWorks! Ashley believes strongly in informal education and the power of play for lifelong learning. Outside of HealthWorks! and school, Ashley finds herself dancing, spoiling her dog, watching way too many movies, and probably tripping over something that isn’t there.
