Dyslexic

Childhood and Family:

Ashley Scott was born Ashley McCall Scott on July 13, 1977, in Metairie, Louisiana. She was raised in Charleston, South Carolina. She has dyslexia.

“It was really difficult and frustrating back when I was really young in school. We finally figured out what it was when I was in third grade, probably like eight years old, which was relieving, because when you are young and you have troubles like that early, people think you are stupid. Over time I had just learned little tricks. For some reason when I write in cursive, it's easier and flows better for me to read that when I print. I'll try to get a script a week early if possible so that I can get a head start. With this you just learn ways to do things that work best for your mind. I'm trying to create awareness and it's nice to be a voice for others.” Ashley Scott (about her dyslexia)

In 2004, Ashley married Anthony Rhulen, but they later divorced in 2008. She then married Steve Hart in 2010. The couple have one daughter together.
