Born in Ft. Wayne, IN, Ashley received her B.A. in Journalism and Germanic Studies from Indiana University. She thanks her parents for allowing her to spend her junior year at university in Freiburg, Germany on an exchange program where she learned how to really speak German and discovered her interest in teaching. She insists that any students serious about learning a foreign language should spend an extended amount of time in the country to become comfortable with the language. Back in the States, she taught German to an elementary group and the native German Samstagschule (Saturday School) for two years. She also received her K-12 teaching license from IU and helped institute the K-12 German practicum for future German teachers.
