In 2017 she moved to the clerical portion of the practice to become the Financial Coordinator and has since been promoted to Office manager. She has four children and four grandchildren.

Ashley joined us in 2011 after graduating with a degree from the Central Carolina Community College Dental Assisting Program. Over the years Ashley has become an integral part of our practice, eventually earning the role of Clinic Coordinator. Her favorite part of her job is the opportunity she has to get to know our patients over the course of their treatment, then watching their faces light up when they see their new smile for the first time. Ashley is from Fort Bragg, NC and loves being a mom to her two precious kids and spending time on their boat and at the beach. Sunshine and summertime are her favorites and Ashley dreams of someday living close enough to the coast to be able to head to the beach whenever she wants.

Harry served for 8 years in the US Army as a military police officer. In that time, he was deployed to Haiti and Iraq. After the military, he graduated from the dental assisting program at FTCC in 2015. In his spare time, he loves to cook and play video games.
