Ashlyn was an impressionable, but feisty child. Although small for her age, she would stand up for herself no matter how big the bully. As a teenager she attended her older brother's graduation from Starfleet Academy, and was immediately awestruck by all the young adults in uniform. This event turned out to be the driving force that prompted her to broadened her academic interests toward the stars, and change her course of study to one that would prepare her for a career involving space travel.
When the time came for her to start her training at Starfleet Academy, she went to her father, asking that he pull some ambassadorial strings to get her application approved quickly. Disapproving of her career choice, he refused, but after weeks of arguing, they came to a compromise... If she would serve as a medical officer, he would get it approved. However, due to other obligations he was delayed in doing so, and she was approved without his help. This opened her choice of duty post, and she chose to become a Security officer, the one thing he did not want her to become, because of her small stature.
After four years of training, Ashlyn is now ready to take her final exam.
