What does Ashley do for Student Life?

Throughout the year, Ashley coordinates lots of details in preparation for Camp, like talking to Student Pastors and campuses to make sure everyone is good to go. During the summer, she works with our traveling office staff to make sure everyone is registered and organized for a fantastic week of Camp!

Ashley has been serving at Student Life since 2014.

Where did Ashley come from?

Born: Guatemala City, Guatemala

The word "hometown" doesn't really apply to Ashley since she's lived in Guatemala, Atlanta, two different towns in Texas and her parents now live in Charlotte, NC. She graduated from Cedarville University, a private Christian university in Ohio. Now she loves calling Birmingham home.

What is Ashley's passion?

She LOVES experiencing new cultures through food and traveling. She's a nerd about food - eating it, cooking it, eating it, learning about it, and eating it. She's always up for trying new food!

What's the craziest thing you've ever done?

Once I ate semi-raw, lukewarm turtle eggs in El Salvador. Apparently they're a delicacy. I'd love to let those wonderful people keep their delicacy.

What's the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?

Hmmm. Sometimes I find new words to expand my vocabulary. It's the nerdiest. #noshame

What's your secret talent?

I love to rap. I'm not claiming to sound like anything but a basic white girl, but I'm always down to learn a new song.

What are you watching on Netflix?

Parks and Rec, The Office, and Friends
