Ashlyn (she/her) is known for being a compassionate, kind, and driven person who’s laugh and smile light up any room she walks into. She got inspired to try theatre at a young age after watching her uncle perform on Broadway stages. Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, she spent her childhood traveling between home and New York City to train with professionals. Her favorite SU credits include Kristine in A CHORUS LINE, Monteen in PARADE, and Lily in A KILLER PARTY. At Shenandoah, Ashlyn serves as Co-president for Hornets’ Nest Student Theatre, social media coordinator for the musical theatre department, and also is in charge of bringing her classes senior showcase to life! In addition to receiving her BFA, she will graduate this spring with a minor in dance and will continue to work towards her Masters of Science in Performing Arts Leadership and Management through SU (class of 2024). When Ashlyn isn't performing, you can find her painting with her watercolor pens, taking cute pictures of her friends, spending time with her family, taking care of her garden, hiking to see the sunset, or eating a whole cookie cake by herself. Ashlyn has so much love for her classmates and is looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for MT’23 after graduation! She is just so grateful that she gets to do the thing she loves every single day!
