Patient Advocate

awarner@44n.com

Ashley works as a patient advocate ensuring that insurance issues and questions are taking care of in a timely fashion.  She hopes to earn the trust of her members by being accessible, honest, and relatable.  What she finds the most interesting about patient advocacy is the legality behind each issue and using this knowledge to assist members work through insurance questions and concerns.  Ashley has a bachelor’s degree from Siena Heights University, majoring in both History and Pre-Law studies and graduating in only three years as Summa Cum Laude.  Ashley really hopes to bring her extreme care for detail and customer service experience to 44North in the upcoming years.

Ashley is a transplant from southeast Michigan who moved to the Cadillac area after college.  She is still adapting to the area and has learned that dirt roads really do exist and just because it is summer, does not mean it is the right season for a seasonal road.  Ashley met her husband, Nick, at Siena Heights University where she played softball and he played baseball.  Ashley was named three-time All-American Scholar-Athlete while attending SHU and is an avid Detroit sports fan.  If Ashley is not at work, you will most likely find her on a softball field, fishing, riding ATVs, or at home watching sports.
