Ashleigh was originally drawn to veterinary medicine because of her love of animals, but after working in the field, her passion for science is just as strong as her love for the animals. Ashleigh loves being able to treat and care for animals that wouldn’t be able to survive otherwise. She also sees an ill patient’s road to recovery as the sweetest opportunity to be a part of.

Ashleigh grew up caring for all sorts of living creatures, but now her home is filled with several small dogs that brighten up anyone’s day, and are the best part of Ashleigh’s life.

Away from the hospital, Ashleigh spends as much time as she can outside. She can usually be found high in the hills, at the river, or just outside in the backyard. She loves being active, and spending time with her loved ones.
