BIO

Ashley’s interest in pregnancy and birth began in 2009 when she attended the birth of her first nephew. Shortly after graduating with a bachelor's degree in business in 2010, she moved to southeast Asia, where she would remain for the next two years teaching English and yoga. Upon returning to Tennessee, Ashley became certified as a prenatal yoga instructor and doula, opening a solo doula practice in 2014 before partnering with Arielle and opening Music City Doulas a year later.


Through her work as a doula and childbirth educator, Ashley aims to present options and evidence so each family may choose what suits them best. She has much experience with natural and medicated births, vaginal and cesarean deliveries, VBACs, and has worked in homes, birth centers, and a wide variety of our  local hospitals. Ashley's passion for family-centered care steered her into becoming a nurse, where she finds herself assisting new families every day in creating healthy birth memories. She currently attends graduate school as a student nurse-midwife and looks foward to being able to transition into that role when she completes her studies.


Outside of her work, Ashley enjoys spending time at her Gallatin home cooking plant-based meals, riding her Peloton, and playing with her two rambunctious cats, who mostly just tolerate each other.
