Caroline Ashley serves as the Head Varsity Volleyball Coach for Athens Christian School. She and her husband, Will, have a two year old son, William Lee, and a dog, Goose.
Caroline grew up in Social Circle, Georgia and attended Loganville Christian Academy. During her middle and high school years, she developed a passion for volleyball and competitive horse riding. Caroline's education continued at Georgia Southern University, where she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Child and Family Development. Upon graduation, she completed a fellowship at Camp Twin Lakes working with individuals with various abilities, illnesses, and challenging life situations. Caroline's time at Camp Twin Lakes led her to earn a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) certification, which gave her the opportunity to apply behavioral therapy to children with Autism. For the last year and a half, Caroline has had the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom.
At the age of nine, Caroline fell in love with the game of volleyball and began playing year-round. During the school season, she specialized in outside and right side hitting along with back row defense. Caroline then transitioned to travel season where she specialized in setting. Her summers were packed with multiple volleyball camps to fine tune those specialties. Throughout her club volleyball career, she played for Georgia Juniors, NFC Volleyball, and Metro Elite Volleyball teams and was mentored by a number of decorated athletes and talented coaches, including a two-time Division I All American setter. Caroline looks forward to bringing her knowledge, skills, and understanding of the game to ACS Varsity Volleyball.
