About Ashley Earley

Ashley Earley is a recruiter with the Commercial Banking and Commercial Finance Team in the Nashville, Tennessee headquarters of ThinkingAhead. As a member of the Commercial Banking and Commercial Finance team, Ashley is a search consultant whose search practice is mainly focused on commercial banking and financial services throughout the Upper Midwest (Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan).

Prior to joining ThinkingAhead, Ashley graduated from Vanderbilt University with her degree in Psychology and as an All-American basketball player. In 2005, she decided to take her game to the pros after being drafted by the Indiana Fever. After a stint playing professionally, Ashley decided to return to the college game where she recruited and coached many top collegiate basketball players around the country at Alabama, Marquette, and the University of Virginia. In 2013 Ashley returned to her alma mater, Vanderbilt University, as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator. She finished her collegiate coaching and recruiting tenure on a very high note,┬ásigning the #6 ranked recruiting class in the country and #1 in the SEC. Also in 2016, Ashley was named to the SEC’s Legend’s Class–a┬ádistinction awarded to only the very top players and coaches.

In 2016, Vanderbilt made a head coaching change and Ashley viewed this as her opportunity to move on from coaching and get into the business world selling financial services and investment products with Primerica, a leading investments services firm.

Ashley is a graduate of Vanderbilt University with a B.A. in Psychology. She also holds an M.S. in Marketing from the University of Alabama. Ashley has her Series 6 Investment license as well as her life insurance license.
