Dr. Ashley was born and raised in southern New Hampshire, left briefly for college, returned to the Upper Valley for medical school at Dartmouth and never left.

Dr. Ashley can be found both in the office at SRHC and in the school based clinics . She has a special interest in adolescent medicine and mental health, but truly enjoys following families from birth to graduation.

Jennifer worked at CHaD on the general pediatric and adolescent unit, Pediatric ICU, Neonatal ICU and the Birthing Pavilion.

Once the decision was made to return to the Upper Valley in 2014, her passion for working with families and children had her reconnect with Dr. Becky as SRHC's caremanager and Friday RN. Jennifer looks forward to the change of seasons and the joy of playing in the outdoors with cross country skis, hiking boots and maybe a kayak or small sail craft in the months ahead.
Amber grew up in VT and left seeking adventure. Luckily she came back to us and found that she could combine her passion of working/being around children and her previous office experience. Now you can find her at the front desk at South Royalton Health Center ready to help patients and families check into their appointments, answering the phones, and helping with billing questions. Come say Hi!
When not out landscaping, Pauline can be found working on billing and claims, she is available by portal message and will get back to you as quickly as possible. We are lucky to have Pauline to help sort out all the insurance questions!
