Friday Feature: Ashley Griffin

My name is Ashley and I am 36 years old. I am wife to a Defensive coordinator, track and girls soccer coach at Vandegrift HS in Austin, TX. We have been married for 7 years and my husband has been coaching for 10 years. I work full-time as a pediatric nurse practitioner in pediatric neurosurgery. We have a daughter who is 4 and a son who is 2. Her husband was selected in the top 25 to the Coaches Academy with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!

What is one item you can't live without that makes this life easier?
  • For the games a Stadium Chair and my google calendar!
What is your go to concession stand order or must have snack?
  • Popcorn! My daughter would say skittles!
What is the craziest thing you have survived due to this lifestyle?
  • I’m a nurse practitioner and sometimes I’m on call during games, that means packing my laptop in my game day backpack and keeping my work phone in my bra so I don’t miss any calls!

  • Don’t worry. It will all work itself out in God’s favor
