Ashley joined the Home Instead Senior Care Long Beach team in November 2013. During her tenure, she has held several roles. She is currently the Staffing Lead. She works closely with Stephanie and Jenna to handle the clients’ and caregivers’ schedules, resolve client and caregiver issues, and create great matches for our caregivers and clients. Ashley was motivated to join the senior healthcare industry after spending so much time with her Great Aunt who is now 95 and Grammy Bear.

In her spare time, she loves to go to hockey games, spend time with her family, and play volleyball.
