Today, he is actively involved in pediatric research, and has been the Principal Investigator on several studies.

Dr. Ashley and his wife Kelly, live in Dothan, and enjoy spending time with their two sons. He enjoys hunting, antique collecting, and bottle digging and collecting. An avid Georgia Bulldog fan, you might catch him saying, “Go Dawgs!”
