Ashley joined the 7 News Team in February of 2011 as a producer after graduating from West Liberty University in December of 2010. She spent her first six months producing the 5 and 6 o'clock newscast, then later produced FOX Ohio Valley at 10 and 7 News at 11. In April 2012, Ashley accepted the position as Executive Producer of 7 News This Morning.
While attending college at West Liberty University, Ashley served as a producer, director, and reporter for Newsline 14, a student produced newscast. She also served as Online Editor for the university's student-run newspaper, The Trumpet. As Online Editor, Ashley built the first-ever school news website that is still in existence today.
A Wheeling native, Ashley also has four years of work as a Webmaster for the Ohio County WVU Extension Office under her belt. She also served as a Young Life leader in the Ohio Valley for six years.
When she's not working, she likes to spend time with her family, friends, and puppies, peke-a-paps Maddie and Oscar. She also likes to travel, watch Netflix, and shop.
Ashley is a big fan of music and claims there isn't one type of music that she can't tolerate. If it weren't for her love of live television, she would probably be working in the music business. Ashley also loves anything pop culture and random facts, so it's pretty safe to say she has played many rounds of Trivial Pursuit and won.
Growing up in the theater, Ashley has always been an animated person. She loves to laugh, and make people laugh. She also loves to meet new people! So if you see her out and about, please stop her and say hello!
