A native of Jackson, Ashley Steen’s remarkable story is the prime example of the point that it is not where you start, it is how you respond and finish. She finished high school and decided she wanted to become a nurse since it was natural for her to take care of people. She later became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). She worked in this profession for eight years before she realized nursing was just not her calling. However, caring for people remains Steen’s passion. After moving to Ridgeland, she enrolled in Holmes Community College. She has touched many people and hearts while being at Holmes. She is now a sophomore majoring in pre-physical therapy. She has dreams and aspirations to work in the sports industry in physical therapy and later get a job in the athletic department for the Dallas Cowboys or the New Orleans Saints.
