Ashlee was born in Merced, California where her father was stationed in the Air Force. Her family moved to a small town in Pennsylvania when she was a child to be closer to friends and family. After graduating highschool and meeting her husband, Freeman, she moved to Horseheads, New York and married in 2008. Ashlee and Freeman now have three children, two dogs, and own a home near Ithaca, New York. Making a difference, getting involved, and helping others has always been a commitment for Ashlee. She has past experience as a care aid in a retirement home and other human health care offices.

Joining us at Lake Road Animal Hospital in 2010 as a veterinary assistant, Ashlee has since become a kennel manager, our social media manager, and assists the doctors in exam rooms. She also contributes to our website, blog writing, marketing, and PR departments. Ashlee holds a Fear Free Certification as well as a Solving Canine Behavior Problems Certificate from Cornell University. She enjoys traveling for continuing education and has a passion for science and discovery.

When not working at our hospital and kennel, Ashlee spends time with family and friends, traveling, writing, hiking, and various outdoor activities.

What Ashlee enjoys most about being a part of the LRAH&K Team: Strengthening the bond between clients, pets, and their veterinary team, our progressive medicine, and our empowering culture.
