Patient care is personal for Erin Ashley.
“As a medical provider, you really have to love people and love helping people,” Ashley said. “I want to get to know my patients and have them feel comfortable sharing their concerns with me.”
Ashley recently moved from Tulsa with her husband, Ross, to join Mercy Edmond I-35 as a physician assistant. Ashley says her goal is to change patient perspective on healthcare.
“I want patients to know that I truly care about them and want them to be healthy,” Ashley said.
Ashley graduated with a master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Community Medicine. Before completing her master’s program, Ashley received a bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University in athletic training. She has worked as a certified athletic trainer with the OU tennis program.
“I believe in the power of healthy eating and exercise,” Ashley said. “I want my patients to believe in it, too.”
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys working out and spending time with her two dogs. Ashley and her husband are also involved in church and lead a small group out of their home.
