Ashley Opp was born and raised in Southwest Texas on the border of Mexico. In 2006 she acquired her degree as a Registered Nurse. She has worked primarily in the Emergency Department. ER nursing has taken her across the country from NYC to Seattle and many places in between. Three years ago, she had a desire to promote well-being in the community outside of the hospital setting. Specifically, she had a new desire to pursue women’s health, and thus the dream of becoming a midwife was born! For the past 2 years she has been in Hawaii pursuing Midwifery through GoMidwife’s Modules of Midwifery course. Her heart and passion are for midwifery and plans to pursue becoming a CPM in the future.
She loves living on Big Island and loves helping the community here through working at AKUC.
