A Connecticut native, Ashly began her career as a young,
professional ballet dancer and a star in the Hartford Ballet
Company. She later became a founding member and a
prominent choreographer of the Hartford Contemporary Dance
Theater. She continued pursuing her dreams by earning her
Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Carnegie Mellon University in
the prestigious Musical Theater Drama Department. Before
graduating, she landed a small part in  the CBS Movie Of The
Week, "No Place Like Home" starring Jeff Daniels.
She then continued adding to her accomplishments in theater by
staring in many leading roles at regional theatres across the
country. These included The Hartford Stage Company, The
Pittsburgh Playhouse and Ocean West Theater Company.
In Los Angeles, Ashly originated the role of Pandora in the
award winning production of "Children of the Night", at the
Ebony theater. Then during her time in Los Angeles, Ashly
formed and became the lead singer of the rock band "Taboo
You", which headlined at The Roxy and The Whiskey on
Hollywood's Sunset Strip.
After the break-up of the band, she shifted her interests to
Nashville, where she then put together a special French/
American Cabaret show and performed at a number of Five
Diamond establishments drawing in large crowds. Upon
returning to her home state, Ashly  has headlined at BB King's
Dance Club at Foxwoods Casino on their Thursday "Caribbean
Night" and at the "Taste Of Hartford" event.
Ashly was also the featured performer every Friday and
Saturday nights dancing and singing to Merengue, Salsa,
Cumbia, Bachata, Disco and Rock at La Vie En Rose Bistro in
New London, CT.
She then released on Hothead Recordings her first solo album
titled, "Ai Bailar (Let's Dance)", starting with her first single and
video titled "My Tango Baby", and a special 4-track EP taken
from her album titled "The Ballroom EP".
Ashly then created and copyrighted "Cardio Latina
". This is an
adaptation of Latin dances combining both ballroom and night-
club styles to create a fun, and effective fitness craze that has
swept the state of Connecticut for nearly two years now.  
Finally, at the urge of her fans and with a hunger for the
excitement and creativity of her days in California as a real
rocker she led the development of the band known as
"Cruz Machine"
