Ashley Maue was a Probation and Parole officer before she left to become a Park Ranger for St. Charles County Parks and she says it was the best decision she’s ever made. She absolutely loves her job! Ashley grew up on a few acres in St. Louis County which sparked her love and curiosity for nature. It was an escape but also the best teacher of respect, sustainability, and beauty. She tries to pass along those same concepts to the individuals who attend her programs. What she loves about being a Park Ranger is sharing her love and passion for outdoor recreation, nature, and wildlife with all of my community. Ashley believes parks are a necessary sanctuary for people, plants, and wildlife who rely on all of us for protection. It’s not about being perfect because there is no wrong way to enjoy nature. To give a person the gift of wonder is to give them something of infinite value. She absolutely lovse all the experiences you can have while in any natural outdoor setting and how everything can be a teachable moment.
