Ashley is a 13 year old 8th grader who is currently your Royal International Miss Arizona Preteen. She is in a pre professional ballet program and aspires to be a ballerina when she gets older. After her ballet career she wants to be a pediatric orthopedic surgeon to help other children like herself who have scoliosis.
She is the founder of Sargeant's Army, a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation that creates and donates cat toys and blankets to cat shelters so the cats have a taste of home before they find their forever family. She also speaks and reads to K - 4th grade classrooms about anti-bullying and spreading kindness. While she was reading to one of the classrooms she was inspired to write her own anti-bullying book based on her experiences when she was younger. Gino and the Monster Bully is available on Amazon.
She loves the sisterhood of pageantry and the confidence that you gain being a part of pageants.
