Name: Ashley Graves

Nickname: Ash

Hometown: Somerset, Ohio

If I could spend the day with anyone it would be… Ellen DeGeneres. Besides being hilarious, she is a philanthropist, an advocate and true to herself.

If I could travel anywhere, I would go to… someplace warm with my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews.

When I have downtime I… haha, I don’t have downtime, I have four active children!

My favorite movie is… I am one of those strange people who never watch movies.

The quote I tend to live by is… “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins, though not through strength, but by perseverance.” – H. Jackson Brown

I am a nurse educator because… I absolutely love the career of nursing! I greatly enjoy being able to guide other people to learn how to do what they are passionate about.

The best advice I could give incoming freshmen is… it won’t be easy but it will be worth it! Enjoy every moment and never give up!

One thing you may not know about me is… I have 15 chickens!
