Ashley has been choreographing regularly in many capacities since the age of seventeen. While studying at Transylvania University, she had the opportunity to choreograph for the university's choirs, dance team, her Greek organization, and for theater productions.  She choreographed musicals such as title of show, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, Beguiled Again, and Schoolhouse Rock Live!, and assisted with the choreography of Carousel. In the fall of 2010 Ashley collaborated with one of the university's theater professors, Dr. Timothy Soulis, and a fellow music major, Alex Yaden, to create The Bakkhai; a rock opera based on the ancient text 'The Bacchae' from Euripides. With Soulis adapting the Greek tragedy into a modern day opera and Yaden composing an original score, Ashley choreographed the show and aided in each cast member discovering and physically embodying their characters. In 2011 she received an Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance from the Kentucky Chapter of the National Society of Arts & Letters after competing in their choreography competition. 

Ashley has recently begun showcasing her own choreography in New York City, both for film and for stage. She has presented pieces in the Brooklyn Dance Festival's Performance for Emerging Choreographers, at Chris Palacio's Rooftop Showcase, in Gotham Dance Theater's Emerge Choreographer's Showcase, in the New York Jazz Choreography Project, in the Holi Hai Festival on Governor's Island, in On 1 Condition: Unicorns, in Emotions Physical Theater's Contemporary Dance Showcase, in NACHMO's 2018 Theater Performance, and was selected to present a new work in Sans Limites' Movement Festival.
