Ashley is a fifth generation South Dakotan. After finishing nursing school in 2014, Ashley recognized the need for a different type of care for aging adults. Inspired to help the aging South Dakota population live independently and to address the rural healthcare crisis, she set out to create Independent Health Solutions. Launched with funding awarded from the South Dakota Governor Giant Vision Business Competition, the business is now flourishing and recently expanded to providing medical services for businesses and the local communities of South Dakota. Ashley is a registered nurse, has her Master of Business Administration in Health Care Management and recently completed her dual certification in Legal Nurse Consulting and Forensic Nursing.

Ashley enjoys spending time with her husband of 27 years and daughter. Ashley is a beloved wife, mother, friend, aunt advocate, and member of her community, which are the titles she loves the most.
