Ashley was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. She graduated from Omaha North High School. Ashley’s journey into the legal field began in 2003, when she became a receptionist for an Omaha law firm (coincidentally, at the same firm at which David Handley was working, and with whom she works now). In 2005, Ashley became a legal assistant at Berkshire & Burmeister. Later, Ashley worked with Rich Schicker, and, in 2018, Watson & Carroll happily welcomed Ashley to the team.
Ashley both enjoys and excels in working with people, legal procedures, and deadlines. Being a paralegal allows Ashley to combine and utilize her three professional aptitudes in a way that helps people who need it most. Ashley’s favorite part about working at Watson & Carroll is being able to assist our injured clients in finding appropriate treatment and legal closure. In this way, being a paralegal is more than just a job for her. For that and many other reasons, Ashley is a perfect fit for Watson & Carroll.
Outside the office, Ashley spends time with her amazing family, including her four children. Ashley’s hobbies are vast and diverse, and her artwork is impressive. At any given time, you will find her working on three to four separate projects, some for fun and some at the request of charitable fundraisers. Ashley loves to complete projects with her children for the fun of it and says her projects keep her grounded.
