Pastor Ashley grew up in Houston, rolling down the hill at Miller Outdoor Theater and cheering on the Astros. She takes the Gospel seriously, but takes herself far less seriously. Her journey has included everything from church work to retail and waiting tables. Along with her husband and daughter, she’s excited to rediscover the city and follow her passion for creativity and justice with Kindred.
