Better yet, she is the proud fur mom to three long haired Siamese cats! Daryl, Stormy and Ari are worth having to take a Zyrtec every single day. Outside of work Ashley likes to watch sports (Roll Tide), take dance classes, hang out with her nephews, go on cruises and enjoy time with her kitties while she catches up on her favorite TV shows.
