Before moving to Detroit in May 2013, Ashley covered Kansas State football and men’s basketball for three years as a correspondent for the Associated Press. Before working for the AP, she wrote for the Kansas State Collegian, where she also spent time as a copy editor and sports editor. Overall, she compiled hundreds of sports stories on her way to graduating. She minored in Spanish and economics along with majoring in journalism, but writing has always been her passion.
