Ashlee grew up in a small South Dakota town to pursue a Graphic Design degree and later relocated to Kansas to pursue a Bachelor’s in Applied Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Early Childhood Autism Intervention. She has helped teach children with special needs for nine years in a university, clinical, home, and school setting and firmly believes that learning should never stop.
Ashlee originally began her career in Marketing, Animation, Web Design, and Technical Writing for the Forbes 200 Small Business company, Daktronics. Her writing, manual revisions, and designs helped contribute to the precise times and scores for the 2004 Olympics in Athens as well as high schools, universities, and professional sporting venues across the globe. Without these manuals, Olympic gold medalist, Michael Phelps would not hold accurate world records and NFL’s Patrick Mahomes would be unable to efficiently work the game clock in important games such as the 2020 Super Bowl.
If you cannot find Ashlee writing or teaching, surely you are not looking high enough as she is likely scrambling up a 14,000 foot mountain or freezing at Everest Base Camp, standing on a stage attempting to be humorous with improv (maybe stand-up in the future), or even exploring the Kansas City area while saying, “Yes” to new ideas that come her way. If you ever see her staring into the middle of nowhere, that usually means she has new ideas forming. Do not be alarmed.
