Ashley Watts was born and raised in West Linn, Oregon. After graduating from West Linn high school, she studied Conservation Biology and Applied Linguistics at Portland State and Oregon State Universities.
At a young age, Ashley developed a passion for animals when her father signed her up for equestrian lessons. This passion led her to some unique work experiences after college, first working as a horse chiropractor, then training barrel horses in Bend, and finally managing an equestrian facility in Beaverton!
Ashley is also passionate about children. She herself is dyslexic, and feels a deep connection to the mission of Park Academy. She enjoys getting to know the kids and their unique personalities.
