Ashley has always demonstrated a passion for paper (sheet music), pencils (Blackwing, of course), and performance (violin). She shares those passions with the WCO, as their Personnel Manager & Music Librarian.
As a violinist, Ashley maintains an active concert schedule and is not afraid to step out of the classical genre and into the flames (literally!); she has performed with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the band, Disturbed.
She graduated Summa cum Laude from North Park University with a B.M. in Violin Performance and received her M.M. in Violin Performance from Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts.
In 2018, Ashley launched her career in Arts Administration with the Wisconsin Philharmonic where she held positions in Orchestra Librarianship, Personnel Management, General Management and Fundraising. She has worked with the Kenosha and Racine Symphony Orchestras as Personnel Manager & Music Librarian and became the Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra’s first Executive Director in May 2021.
In her spare time, Ashley can be found exploring new bakeries and cupcake shops or spending time with her Chihuahua, Paco.
