Ashley has been a Virginia native the majority of her life, save for a couple of years when she ventured off to the west coast. She spent most of her childhood growing up in and exploring the Burke area where her parents still reside. Summers as a child, she spent with her Granny in Newport News watching Elvis movies, helping her Aunt take care of horses and cows, and just getting dirty with her cousins as all tomboys do. While on the west coast, she worked with dogs; rehabilitating those that were in poor health or helping abused dogs trust humans again and find their perfect forever home. Needless to say, she is an avid animal lover at heart.
Ashley has an artistic background; attending Lake Braddock Secondary School and taking as many art classes as she could and then received a BFA in photography from The Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington DC. She was also an interior decorator before becoming an agent, which has allowed her to assist her clients in visualizing a space that they may not have been able to see on their own as well as give renovation ideas if the home needs love.
Ashley enjoys spending time with her family as well as her two dogs; Loki and Happy. She takes "da boyz" for long walks and discovers new places with them, especially Happy who is fearful of new surroundings. Their favorite spots to walk are Daniels Run Trail in Fairfax City and the 5-mile walk around Burke Lake; so many smells! But mostly when she isn't working, she's probably singing; in her car, at home to her dogs, or wherever she can find a karaoke night. If you're quiet enough walking into an open house, you may even catch her practicing some of her favorite songs to pass the time if the acoustics are good.
Her knowledge of Burke and the surrounding areas has allowed Ashley to assist numerous clients to find the right home based on their wants and needs. Her clients love how patient she is, how quick she is to respond to any questions or concerns, but also how comfortable and at ease she makes them feel as they move through the buying process, she likes to keep it as stress-free as possible for everyone.
