She is the Office Manager and the Director of Special Events. She started working at Jump Start when she was still in high school (2005) and can answer any question you might have about anything.
A Peoria Notre Dame High School graduate with degrees from Illinois Central College and Illinois State University (Bachelor of Science in elementary education), Ashley’s training and certifications include USA Gymnastics Safety & Risk Management, Red Cross CPR & First Aid, and Region 4 Compulsory Workshop 2013. One of her top awards came in 2013 when she was presented the Jeff Bell Customer Service Award by the Better Business Bureau. “I love working at Jump Start where I can interact with kids on a daily basis! It is such a rewarding experience to be part of a child’s journey and to see life through their eyes!”
