An Interview with Ashley Peasley
What led you to the field of obstetrics/gynecology?
Working in the field of ob/gyn affords me the privilege to be a part of women’s most vulnerable and special moments: From helping women conceive, walking an adolescent through their first menses or helping manage menopausal symptoms, there is no greater joy than educating and empowering women about their bodies. My “light bulb” moment was witnessing my first delivery. I knew then that this was the field for me.
How many years have you been practicing in the field?
I worked as a nurse in Labor and Delivery for two years while completing my master’s degree Nursing. After graduation, I moved to Long Island and have been practicing as a women’s health nurse practitioner for the last three years.
What makes your job rewarding? What do you enjoy about your work?
Educating and empowering women to make the best healthcare choices is what brings me to work every day. There is nothing better than following up with a patient to find out that they feel better after our last appointment. Following patients along their journey and developing unique relationships through all stages of life is a tremendous source of professional satisfaction for me.
What brought you to the area and to this practice?
I moved to Long Island during the COVID pandemic, and I’ve been working here throughout. The Woman’s Health Pavilion was an easy choice given its strong reputation and dedication to providing excellent care to their patients.
Do you have special interests or areas of specialty as an ob/gyn?
I am always excited to assist patients with managing their polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), whether it is regulating their cycles or helping them to conceive.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy gardening, working on home improvement projects, or getting lost in a book. I also love to travel, experiencing cultures both near and far.
