Wellstar Community Report – July 2018 - June 2020

ASHLEYCARE Life comes full circle for this teammember

At 26, Ashley Irwin was a young woman on the move. A graduate of Auburn University, Ashley was working in fundraising at United Way of Greater Atlanta in September 2011 when a flareup of her Crohn’s disease sent her to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where she had been born. Ashley was recovering at home when what she believed to be a severe migraine turned out to be a stroke. Complications led to emergency brain surgery at Kennestone and a couple of weeks in ICU. Following a successful rehab and recovery, Ashley continued her non-profit career by joining theWellstar Foundation in 2016 as a development officer. Fast forward eight years to September 2019 when Ashley and her husband Kevin returned to Kennestone to welcome their first child! As she held little Luke for the first time, Ashley was overcome with awe and gratitude. “From my birth, to my stroke and the birth of my son, Wellstar has always been there for me,” she says.
