Ashley came to Los Angeles from Northern California.

The following year, she was promoted again to an Associate Producer.

Ashley has been at the center of some of the biggest and busiest news days of the past year including the San Bernardino terror attacks, the day LAUSD closed all schools due to a threat and the procession for former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

In her spare time, Ashley enjoys taking her pitbull-mix, Lucy, to the beach, baking cookies and traveling to breweries to sample the latest in craft beer.
