As a native to Murrieta, Ashlee understands the importance of continuing to strengthen and grow the club volleyball scene in the Inland Empire. Ashlee graduated from Murrieta Valley in 2004, where she was a member of the volleyball team as well as the Associated Student Body. As a Student Athlete throughout her life she has learned numerous valuable life lessons which she instills in her athletes today. Finding a balance of academics, athletics, and social are crucial to strengthening the qualities of not only an athlete, but a well-rounded “good human.”
After her time at Murrieta Valley she went onto play two years at OCC, where she led the Pirates to back to back State Championships. Ashlee also earned All-Conference recognitions both seasons as a Pirate. After her success at OCC she moved her talents to Tallahassee to continue her academic and athletic pursuit as a Seminole. At Florida State Ashlee received recognition of ALL ACC her senior year, while also earning the honor of All ACC Academic Team. Ashlee graduated as a student athlete in 2009 with a Bachelors of Science.
Ashlee has continued to find the importance of creating strong student athletes through her work as a teacher, coach, and advisor. No athlete will find success without a strong, committed work ethic both in the gym and in the classroom. Ashlee has taught in Murrieta Valley Unified School District for 6 years and loves the ability to impact students in and out of the classroom.
