With a bachelor of science in Psychology from Birmingham-Southern College and a master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School, Ashley also has 15 years’ experience in non-profit work, counseling, community organizing and outreach.
A former young adult missionary with the United Methodist Church, Ashley has spent time in Israel/Palestine and is passionate about peace and justice in that area. She has served as an editor for Horizons, the magazine and Bible study of Presbyterian Women in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Most recently, Ashley served as Executive Director of United Ministries, a faith-based nonprofit in the Pensacola area providing emergency assistance to families in crisis.
Ashley and her husband Chris grew up in Pensacola and are thrilled to be living and serving in this great community. Ashley loves running and spending time with family and friends. She and Chris love to camp, fish, spend time at the beach, and watch Florida State football and Duke basketball. As grateful new parents, they are still figuring out how to introduce baby Booker and big sister Emma to all those wonderful things as well.
