Ashley, a PA native, has been playing violin since age 10 and grew up in a house full of music with both parents playing several instruments. She continued with violin instruction and played in her college’s symphony alongside pursuing her BS in Business Management at Bucknell University. After graduation, she spent 9 years living and working in Spain and Germany and was able to join a local community orchestra in Kornwestheim, Germany for several years. She recently moved back to the US and settled in Fort Myers with her husband and 2-year-old daughter who can’t wait to play her own violin. She is both excited and thankful to have found the Gulf Coast Symphony, a wonderful group of people and musicians.
