Modeling is a competitive career. It requires a lot of dedication, healthy eating habits, and commitment to fitness. More than anything, it requires time. Ashley Wilke has been punching the clock since she was a child. She comments, “I got my first agency in Chicago in middle school for print modeling.”

Ashley was born in Batavia, Illinois, and she was raised in Dekalb, Illinois. In her youth, she loved riding horses, dancing, and cheering at football and basketball games. Of course, she was also involved in modeling. She attended Cornerstone Christian High School. The student population was tiny and close-knit. Ashley shares, “My graduating class only had 8 people!”

She went on to attend the Illinois Center for Broadcasting where she majored in Broadcast Journalism. She excelled in this field and was actually voted “most likely to succeed” by her peers.

Ashley has built up quite a brand in all her years of modeling. She has shot for many well-known companies like Monster Energy, Kohl’s, Groupon, and of course K&N. She has also modeled lingerie and swimwear. Her favorite modeling memory is “shooting a national campaign with Monster Energy.” Her worst modeling memory is, “flying across the country, only to have a shoot canceled.”

In the future, Ashley plans to continue modeling and focus on TV hosting. As for her personal life, she was just married, and in her free time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, and volunteering at animal charities. Ashley looks forward to more campaigns and a life in modeling.
