Why Ashley Loves Colorado
Ashley is a Midwesterner who came to Colorado for opportunities and the outdoors. She was drawn by the promise to create herself here and stayed for the sense of community and optimistic can-do attitude of her fellow Coloradans. Ashley enjoys spending time at her extended family’s home in Grand County and is grateful for the gift of DIA to travel often.
