Ashley grew up in the Dallas suburbs and is a proud “double pony” completing both her undergraduate and law school degrees at Southern Methodist University. Ashley graduated from SMU’s Dedman School of Law in 2006 where she was a member of the Board of Advocates and distinguished herself as a national mock trial champion. After practicing law in Dallas for several years, Ashley moved out-of-state in 2010 due to her husband’s military service and is now admitted to practice law in North Carolina, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. She moved her family back to Texas in 2014 and calls Dallas home with her husband and two boys.
