Ashley's four brothers, all very athletic, played hockey in the winters and baseball in the summers, meaning she basically grew up in arenas and baseball parks.Ashley never actually walked -she danced, so when she was two and a half she started Baby Ballet -and she fell in love.

Theatre became Ashley's second passion and without hesitation, she auditioned and won the coveted role in her first professional theatrical role of Marta in "The Sound of Music".

She was asked to play Baby in "Dirty Dancing" at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto.

Although she hadn't been on stage in nearly ten years, she returned with a vengeance and won critical acclaim for her dead on portrayal of Baby.
