About

Ashley-Head-shot-smI am currently completing my PhD in Education from Trinity University in Dublin, Ireland. In addition, I have a Master’s of Arts in Education (M.A. Ed) and a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts (B.F.A) from the University of New Mexico, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I have been in private practice as a learning specialist for over eight years. Before this I worked as a classroom teacher and reading specialist in both American and British curriculums in International Baccalaureate schools in Europe and in the Middle East. I have extensive teaching experience and through this have culled the best multi-sensorial, child-driven techniques and methods in order to meet each student’s individual needs. These include the Wilson Reading Method ®, Lindamood-Bell’s Visualizing and Verbalizing ®, and Collaborative Problem Solving ®.
