Your 211info Family Specialist
My name is Ashley.
I’m the lead Family Specialist at 211info. I’m a mother and a teacher, and I have worked for more than 15 years with young children and their families. My passion is discussing parenting and providing families and caregivers with ideas and referrals to help raise happy and healthy children.
I have a degree in education and in early intervention. I have worked as a child care provider, home-visitor, parent educator and behavior specialist. I also served as a consultant to local preschools and child care centers, providing guidance around individual situations and system-wide behavioral practices. Through this hands-on-work, I have seen how early childhood programs can improve the lives of children and families.
