Ashley is an actress and writer living in New York City. Originally from a small lake-front town in Michigan, Ashley moved to New York to attend The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre where she learned how to repeat words. Before that she studied at The Theatre School DePaul University in Chicago. She began at the UCB in 2006 with instructors such as Chris Gethard, Christina Gausas, Billy Merritt, Shannon O'Neill, Michael Delaney and Eliza Skinner. Ashley was a member of the 2007 Indie Cagematch champion team Baby Grenade. She can be seen around town performing improv with Daddy (a lovely team formed out of class at UCB) and with her comedy partners in crime, Jessica Stickles and Paul Welsh. Ashley loves cake decorating, hates overhead lighting, and wishes the McChicken was good for you.
