Ashley is a native New Mexican who lives in Albuquerque's beautiful East Mountains with her husband and three sons. When she's not dropping her kids off late, sleeping past her alarm, or cooking something for dinner that's far above her skill level, Ashley enjoys taking in mountain views with her husband, adventuring around ABQ with her kids, enjoying family get-togethers, laughing too loud, and learning to play the drums. Ashley volunteers with two local organizations that exist to bring transformation to Albuquerque through its kids: Shine Partnership and Arches. She also writes occasionally on her blog, Extra(ordinary) Things.
