Ashley Scoggins grew up in Lookout Mountain, Tennessee. She received a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Vanderbilt University and a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Alabama.
Ashley has always had a heart for adolescents and spent years working therapeutically with them. She began her social work career at the Madison County Department of Human Resources helping families develop the required skills to safely keep their children in their homes. After her first child was born, Ashley moved to the Madison County Mental Health Center and counseled clients of all ages on an outpatient basis. As her family expanded, she retired from social work to spend more time with her children.
Ashley worked in area preschools when her children were young and returned to full time work as an administrative assistant for the 5th/6th grades and K-8 Athletics at Randolph School when her kids were school-age. She loved the diversity of her job as well as the students, faculty and staff, and parents.
Ashley spends her free time walking her dog, exercising, reading, container gardening, sewing, and crafting. She loves going to the beach and is a big fan of the Vanderbilt Baseball team.
