Ashley was raised in Paris, TX and graduated from Paris Junior College with an Associate of Applied Science Degree. She moved to Denton to further her education at the University of North Texas, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Advertising. During that time, she met her husband, Matt Collett, and married into the wonderful community of Valley View, which is where they currently reside and raise their three children, Aubrey, Allie, and Kobe. She loves to spend her time in the community volunteering and working on committees for event planning. She continues to actively work in volunteer roles within the Valley View Chamber of Commerce, Valley View PTO, Cooke County United Way, and various other organizations. Her time as a Gainesville Chamber Ambassador only strengthened her love of this community through the various opportunities the role presented. She is overjoyed for the opportunity to continue to support this community through her position.
