Her job duties include taking care of patients’ personal needs, answering call lights, taking patient vital signs, charting, and giving emotional support to patients.
Ashleigh feels her OJT placement has given her more knowledge about the roles of different health care workers and helped her realize what career path she would like to take and maybe even where she may want to work. Ashleigh feels the best part of her OJT training is using her knowledge and skills to make a difference for her patients. She is the Secretary of HOSA (Future Health Professionals) at the BACC.

She also enjoys binge watching her favorite shows and going to Target. Ashleigh is the daughter of Scott Morick and Amanda Hunter.
