Prior to entering the financial services industry, Ashley was the head infant teacher at Childport, a daycare facility affiliated with Bridgeport Hospital. 

Ashley graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Southern Connecticut State University, as well as an Associate's Degree in early childhood education from Gateway Community College. In her free time, Ashley enjoys the many shoreline beaches at anytime of  the year along the coast of Connecticut and beyond. She is also an active volunteer and part of the American Legion Auxiliary group out of Post 196 in Milford, CT. 

Welcome aboard Ashley!
