Ashley Wood, P.A.
After undergoing ACL reconstruction surgery following an injury in soccer, Ashley has wanted to go in to orthopedics. The experience opened her eyes to a particular part of medicine she really enjoy – helping people who are injured to recover and get back to living their life. Her passion is to help people stay healthy and active.
She went to Oregon State University for undergraduate studies where she played on the soccer team as a goalkeeper. She then attended Wake Forest University for PA school. She recently moved back to the Northwest to start her career as a PA at Orthopedic + Fracture Specialists. She loves the variety in orthopedics and isinvolved in sports medicine, total joints, and fracture care. Her goal is to greet everyone with a smile and help each patient achieve their goals.
Outside of work, she enjoy spending time with friends, being outdoors, hiking, and playing or watching sports.
