Born and raised in Springfield, MO, Emily Ashley received her Associate of Arts degree from Ozarks Technical College with an emphasis in Humanities and Arts. In 2007 she spent her summer studying abroad in the Mediterranean. Seeing architecture still standing, dating back to the early part of the Roman Empire, she began to ask, “What am I building in my life that is lasting?” This question led her to study at the School of Metaphysics in the fall of 2007.
Since that time Emily began teaching in Springfield, where she received her Respondere Certificate, and moved to accelerate her studies at the College of Metaphysics in the summer of 2009. Upon graduating she transferred to Tulsa in May 2011 to teach. “Teaching within the SOM course of study is continually a great source of fulfillment and joy,” Emily says, “It allows me to pour out love, inspiration and truth, which graciously returns 10-fold.” She accepted the position of directing the Tulsa branch in November 2011 to learn about leadership and wholeness. Emily is currently working toward her Qui Docet Discit Certificate from the 2nd Cycle of Lessons and is pursuing her Doctorate of Metaphysics. She aspires to become a Psi Counselor, offering this service to people who want to learn to heal from a wholistic and conscious perspective. She also aspires to publish articles and books during her study and work with media outlets including radio, T.V. and newspapers.
