A South Carolina native, Ashton was born in Sumter, SC and grew up in Greenville, SC. She obtained her undergraduate degrees in Biology and Spanish from the College of Charleston where she graduated from the Honor's College and spent time at MUSC doing both volunteer work and cancer research. She then went on to earn her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC where she was awarded the Dr. Dale Newton Scholarship for academic achievement.

Following the completion of her degree, Ashton returned to Charleston where she previously found her passion for Otolaryngology while working for the Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department at MUSC.

Her clinical interests include diagnosis and management of head and neck cancers and optimizing recovery in those patients.
