Occupational Therapist

Ashley received her B.S in Exercise Science from Old Dominion University and then continued on and received her M.S in Occupational Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University. What she loves most about being an occupational therapist is that she gets to build relationships with each of the kiddos and is a part of them growing and achieving new milestones through play!  As she is new to the California sunshine, on her free time, she loves going to the beach with friends, traveling to new places, and exploring San Diego with her dog.
