Biography

Ashlea is a partner at Schuette Law Group in Bowling Green, Kentucky where she practices primarily in the areas of family law, guardianship, civil litigation, and mediation.  Ashlea has devoted her career to advocating for children and families who are the victims of domestic violence, neglect, and abuse, and representing adults with profound mental health and physical disabilities.  This work led Ashlea to be named Guardian ad Litem of the year by CASA in 2017.  Ashlea serves as a private mediator in family law matters and volunteers with the Warren County Pro Bono Mediation Project to provided mediation services to low-income families in her community.

Ashlea is originally from Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, but relocated with her family to Grand Rivers, Kentucky when she was young. She is a granddaughter of coal miners and daughter of a retired small business owner and a retired public school teacher. 

Ashlea’s husband, Todd, is a Sergeant with the Bowling Green Police Department and a Captain in the Kentucky Army National Guard.  Ashlea has three bonus children who she loves with her whole heart. 

Ashlea believes that education is fundamental in developing political ideas, and manages a Facebook page dedicated to teaching others about the law and legislation in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  She utilizes fact-based analysis to formulate and propose reasoned legislative reform.

Additionally, Ashlea and her husband enjoy traveling to historical sites and utilizing these travels to educate others by comparing past military and ideological turning points to current events and contemporary legal and political rhetoric.  Ashlea hopes to publish a book based upon these experiences in the near future.

Ashlea earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Kentucky College of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and Sociology from Western Kentucky University.
