Ashley is the motherly one of the group, both at home as well as at our house. She has quite a bit of experience in the special needs field. When she was in high school, she was in a senior leadership class working with special needs peers. She started at our home a 1 1/2 years ago and is very inspired by the kids. She has worked two summers at a special needs summer camp hosting children and adults with a variety of special needs. She is also a caregiver for several children and now adults with varying special needs, sometimes at her home, their home, and taking them out into the community for fun activities. Ashley’s dream is to eventually open her own in-home day care center. Ashley is completely organized and feverishly works to keep the rest of us organized and on task. Ashley loves watching the kids meet milestones and loves to be silly and cuddly. She is a patient person who loves spending time with her nephews on her days off. Ashley is a true gift to our family.
