Dr. Ashli Donahue is no stranger to the Great Lakes Bay Region, as she grew up and currently resides in Au Gres, Michigan. She attended Saginaw Valley State University as a President’s Scholar, where she studied biochemistry. While at SVSU, she was a biology and chemistry tutor. She always knew that she loved to learn, but as a tutor, she realized that she also loved to facilitate others in educating themselves. She now recognizes that phase in her life was for her to be gifted with skills to aid in future patient education.
During her years of undergraduate studies, Ashli competed in the Miss America Organization to earn scholarship money. In 2016, she served as the area’s Miss Bay County and went on to be named the 2nd Runner Up to Miss Michigan.
Ashli attended dental school at Midwestern University in the suburbs of Chicago, where she was awarded the Spirit of Service Scholarship Award and served as President of the Cosmetic Dentistry Club. Ashli’s love of dentistry stems from her own dental journey, which provided her with newly-found confidence through her smile as a teen. She hopes to provide that same sense of self-assurance to her patients, as well.
In her spare time, Ashli enjoys all the natural amenities that the Great Lakes Bay Region provides, including hunting, fishing, and relaxing on the beach with her husband, Jonny, and their beloved dog, Riggs, who runs their household.
