Ashley grew up in the quaint town of Warsaw, IN. "When I was younger, I always thought that NFL and NBA cheerleaders were the coolest thing ever!" She learned ballet, jazz and tap at an early age. For seven years, Ashley was a member of the Class Act Dance Troupe and won several national competitions. After discovering her college would not let graduate students participate on the dance team, she brought her talent to the Colts.

She is grateful for all the exciting opportunities the Colts gave her throughout the last four seasons. "Being a cheerleader has given me many experiences that I otherwise would never have had…such as winning a Super Bowl, being in a calendar, and standing on the sidelines at the Colts games." But being an NFL cheerleader is harder than it appears!

Ashley works diligently to stay in top shape. She spends many nights doing cardio and lifting at the gym. "When the weather is nice, I enjoy running outside with my four little dogs through the nearby neighborhoods." She also has a passion for traveling and hopes to visit some exotic islands and Europe someday. "I still have not been outside of the United States!"

After earning her doctorate from the University of Indianapolis, Ashley took a job as a traveling physical therapist. She recently moved to Simpsonville, South Carolina, where she resides for three months before being stationed to a new city. She is thrilled at the opportunity to travel the country for such a rewarding job. "Many of the patients I see on a daily basis have overcome great obstacles and give me a lot to be thankful for." In the next few years, Ashley would like to focus on her career and traveling before starting a family.

Even though she is in a new city, Ashley remains an avid Colts fan. "I promote the Colts by having integrity and being respectful, and of course wearing blue every Friday." We wish her the best in all her endeavors!
