Ashley describes herself as a “true Yooper,” having been born in Escanaba and raised in Gladstone, Michigan. To her, Yoopers take pride in their home region and are quick to provide support for their neighbors.
For her, the OSF HealthCare Mission of serving with the greatest care and love fits with her own attitude.
“I chose OSF HealthCare because I want to contribute to the phenomenal care their team provides to our community,” Ashley said. “Having been born at OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group and continuing my own care there until I left the area for college, I’ve personally witnessed the value of having high quality health care available close to home.”
For Ashley, a career in medicine provided her the opportunity to combine her enjoyment of interacting with people and her fascination with learning the intricacies of the human body.
“I want an appointment with me to be an open and honest space; one where patients can feel comfortable sharing their concerns,” Ashley said. “I want patients to know that we are a team and will work together to find solutions.”
In her free time, Ashley enjoys doing anything that involves the outdoors, like hiking, camping and skiing. She also loves to travel, escaping the cold Upper Peninsula winter whenever possible.
