Ashlan has taught English overseas in Thailand and South Korea, which gave her a broadened understanding of different cultures and an appreciation for working with international students. While living overseas she was able to travel to Vietnam, Bali, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Australia, Spain, the UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, and Portugal.
