Warrior Wednesday: Ashley Johnson
Today’s #WarriorWednesday is Ashley Johnson! Ashley served as a nuclear machinist mate and engineering laboratory technician in the U.S. Navy. She deployed to the Persian Gulf in 2014 to 2015 as she was on board the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. Currently, she is a Warrior Advocate at UWS.
When she is not serving our local warriors at Upstate Warrior Solution, she is pursuing her Master’s Degree in social work through the University of South Carolina. “My service showed me that I have a passion for helping others. I use that every day now in both my job and my schoolwork.”
She is working toward her licensure as a clinical social worker. “This would allow me to become a licensed therapist. My goal is to use this to help children and adolescents who have been through traumatic experiences.”
Thank you for your service, Ashley!
