Ashlee Vaughn was born and raised in Olney, Illinois. She graduated from Richland County High School with the class of 2018 before attending Olney Central College, where she graduated with her Associate’s Degree. She then transferred to Eastern Illinois University, where she graduated with her B.S. in Finance. Ashlee plans to sit for the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Exam in 2022

In 2017, Ashlee had the opportunity to take the Co-Op course offered at RCHS. This course allowed her to work during the school day and she was able to secure a position at TrustBank as an intern. After graduating from RCHS, Ashlee was able to continue working under Chelsea for three years as a Wealth Management Associate. During this time, she learned more about finance and other valuable tools to support her career. She feels very lucky to have had a mentor during her entire college experience!

When not at work, Ashlee enjoys spending time with her family and friends, spending time outdoors, online shopping, and binge-watching her favorite Netflix shows.
