Ashley’s introduction to the world of hairstyling came when she spent a day as a model for a project at a local cosmetology school. It was immediately apparent how much fun the students were having with their work. From that day forward, she was inspired to follow their path.

Ashley graduated from the Academy of Salon Professionals in Santa Clara, CA.

She has also received advanced training through Sally Rogerson and Aveda, and cites the senior stylists at Nimbus as some of her greatest teachers—in particular Demetra, the owner of Nimbus. As her career progresses, she hopes to one day provide for others the kind of mentorship she has experienced at Nimbus Salon.  

Previous work at a blowdry bar has given her an edge when it comes to delivering truly excellent blowouts and flatiron work, but her current focus is continuing to build her expertise in color and color corrections. She loves that her job allows her to do something different every day—it means she is always learning.

When she’s not working, she loves reading and spending time with her family and friends.
