Ashley has been in private practice in Thibodaux since the Fall of 2004 and has worked in private pediatric facilities in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Torrance, California.

In the Fall of 2002, Ashley completed the 4 month master level course, Sensory Integrative Dysfunctions, through the University of Southern California, where she was trained and mentored by the colleagues of Dr. A. Jean Ayres, the developer of Sensory Integration theory. Ashley utilizes sensory integration techniques with children and adolescents (birth-16) with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). In addition to her sensory integration experience, Ashley is also trained in the Handwriting Without Tears® program and provides handwriting intervention to children from 4-16 years of age individually or in groups. She is also trained in the areas of oral motor and feeding.
