In addition to holding an MFA in Acting from New York University, I have been fortunate to work in theater (Broadway, Off- Broadway), television (Heroes, Everybody Loves Raymond, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, Secret Circle, Law and Order, among others), and in film, including Steven Spielberg's Minority Report and Little Big League. Safety and respectful collaboration are the foundation of my teaching philosophy. I encourage a passion for play, self-discovery, and a willingness to see yourself as an artist who has the power to affect change in our world. Every experience along the way is a valuable stepping stone. Every teacher, class, director, fellow actor, and audition has provided me with another opportunity to learn and to grow as a storyteller and human being. I've learned to convert the "no thank you's" into opportunity and the "yes's" into fuel! Whether you are a professional or a beginner, a student prepping college/grad school auditions or someone who simply wants to explore their creativity, I look forward to working with you!

Ashley is AMAZING you will not be disappointed she has so much wealth of knowledge, very patient and professional. Highly recommend
Ashley is one of the most wonderful people I have ever worked with. I am so grateful to have met her and gotten her help on my college audition journey. Ashley is open to interpretation, and suggestions and helps you find your voice. She helped me a lot in the audition process and showed me how to approach an over-practiced monologue from a different side and connect to the character. I couldn't be more grateful for getting to work with such an incredible and professional fellow actor and mentor.
