Ashley Aills came to The Grace Place from Chicago where she earned a degree in Elementary Education and worked as a lead Preschool teacher in a Christian school for several years.  Ashley has a deep love for children and has served in children’s ministries since she was a teenager.  Noted for her engaging activities and ability to communicate well with both children and parents, Ashley knows she is called by God to work with children in their early years. She is a strong believer in developing Early Childhood literacy skills and helping children reach their full potential.  While dating her husband Nathan (Tech Director for The Grace Place), Ashley visited The Grace Place. She fell in love with Florida, its people, and the church community. Ashley married Nathan Aills in 2014, moved with him to Florida a year later, and began working as a teacher at Grace Place Preschool. She loves Florida, and believes God has called her to serve others in her current capacity as Director of Preschool and Aftercare.  In addition, Ashley is faithful to serve on the weekends as part of the church’s Tech Team.  She and Nathan are proud parents of a beautiful daughter, Aubrey Elizabeth, who is their miracle from God!
