Ashley Lahey  pastoral assistant to Dan Wilburn


Ashley grew up in Oak Grove then moved to Lee’s Summit when she was 17 where she still resides with her husband Garrett and two children, Aidan and Kai. She went to Avila University and received a Bachelors Degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.  Ashley has worked at Lakeland since 1998, first in video editing and production, then in Children’s ministry, and currently she is the pastoral assistant for Pastor Dan Wilburn. What she loves most about her current job at the church is getting to be part of taking people on prayer retreat and watching God transform their lives. She also works as a medical assistant for a local physician.

Personal Memory

I love to travel. I think my parents instilled this in me.  My favorite vacation growing up was to Hawaii (a gorgeous state) but the best part was taking my grandparents with us. My grandfather was stationed at Pearl Harbor. Seeing the island through his eyes and hearing stories about his time there and about how things had changed since the war was priceless.


I like to play volleyball, travel (just about anywhere), watch Netflix, go to the movie theater, play board games, and I love to cook and bake.
