Ashley is an alumnus of the University of Florida, a licensed direct disposer, and a trained end-of-life doula. Ashley currently serves on the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance's board of directors and community education committee with the Florida Palliative Care Coalition. Her death care career was inspired by growing up in a low socio-economic neighborhood that lacked advocacy on how to deal with end-of-life practices. With more than a decade in the end-of-life care industry ranging from forensic anthropology to whole-body donation, she launched Loyal Hands an end-of-life doula consulting agency to provide education, services, resources, and companionship to agencies, the elderly, and even the healthy as everyone has an end-of-life journey.
She has been featured on TEDx, Forbes, and Yahoo.
