Ashley Moretz-Elks grew up in Ashe County and holds this community near and dear to her heart. She graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology in 2020. In the same year, she began a business with her wife, Amber Elks, in which they create stained glass art and beadwork jewelry. 


Ashley has been passionate about political action from a very young age, an interest that was cultivated by hours-long talks with her grandfather who served in WWII and spent his life as a public servant in numerous non-profit organizations once home. During the 2022 election cycle, her excitement for local politics was encouraged by her work with the local Democratic Party of Ashe County.


Since becoming 2nd Vice President of the Democratic Women of Ashe, she can’t get enough and is extremely excited about the progress the group is making and is sure to continue to make in the future!
