Following a career hiatus to transition into motherhood and live abroad, Ashton aspired to pivot her career towards meaningful work that harmonized her passion for assisting and empowering others with the flexibility, longevity, and upward mobility necessary to support her family during her husband’s military service.

Now, more than a year in this role, she confidently affirms that she has discovered her ideal professional fit.
