Ashley is a third-year law student and in her last semester of law school. Ashley attends Western Michigan- Thomas M Cooley Law School on the weekends in Grand Rapids, Michigan and works full time during the week for Heartland. She plans on taking the February 2017 bar exam and will be a full time Attorney for Heartland Law Firm this coming spring.
Ashley is originally from Allendale, Michigan, which is located right outside of Grand Rapids. She attended Lake Superior State University all the way in the frozen tundra of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where she received a Bachelors of Science degree in Political Science. After graduating she took a year off and worked in marketing and decided that wasn’t the right fit and decided to go law school part time.
Prior to coming to Heartland Law Firm, Ashley worked for large estate planning firm in Michigan. There she handled the legal and financial work for clients. This included designing client estate plans, assisting in moving financial assets, and developing business plans. She worked between the Grand Rapids and Chicago office. After multiple trips to the Chicago Office, Ashley fell in love with the city and decided she wanted to move here full time.
Ashley resides in East Lakeview, which is walking steps from Wrigley Field and the Lincoln Park Zoo. If she is not cheering on the Cubs, she is exploring the city with friends or studying.
