About Ashley

I grew up on a farm outside of Ord, Nebraska, where there are more cows than people. Growing up on a farm was an incredible experience, because I learned to drive a tractor, before I learned to drive a car. Most of my time was spent at Ord High School, as I was involved in most of the extracurricular activities available: Speech, Debate, One-Act, FCCLA, Student Council, etc. In 2014, I started studying English Writing at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. At UNK, I was involved in Global Lopers Mentorship program, the Honor’s Program and several other academic organizations. In 2016, I studied abroad at the University College Roosevelt in Middelburg, The Netherlands, where I met several life-long friends. On May 5, 2017, I graduated with my bachelor’s degree, and I started my master’s degree in Student Affairs at UNK; one could say I am a Loper for life. I will finish my master’s in May 2020, and I plan to begin a doctoral program shortly after.
