ProfilePicAshley writes feature stories and news articles about the Lions, Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons, Michigan and Michigan State.

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.

At age 13, she emailed her dad a recap of a Kansas City Chiefs game, and he responded that she should think about becoming a sports writer. Almost a decade later, she is living the dream, and she could not be more thrilled to be doing so in a great sports town like Detroit.
