Ashlee was first introduced to the Three Principles in 2009; however, it wasn’t until she attended the 3 Principles Global Community Conference in St. Paul in 2014 and “woke” up to the truth of this understanding, that her life began to unfold in a beautiful way! Currently, she is the Program Coordinator for the Resiliency Project in West Des Moines. This program and its parent initiative, West Des Moines’ Youth Justice Initiative, are both Three Principles based community efforts serving youth and their families. She is married to a Kiwi (New Zealander) and is a proud “Bonus” mom to three creative, intelligent step-sons. Favorite pastimes include sleeping in and reading non-fiction in her hammock.
