Ashley Pax, Owner
Ashley Pax, the owner of Ashley’s Playhouse, has always had a vision to create a business that would allow her to engage with children on a daily basis. After getting her Masters in Accounting at the University of Texas at Austin, Ashley worked as an auditor for Ernst & Young for several years before becoming the Revenue Accountant at HomeAway.com here in Austin. In early 2013, Ashley decided it was time to pursue her dream and began plans to open Ashley’s Playhouse, a magical place that kids would love and parents can trust. In addition to her passion for working with children, Ashley is active in her church, enjoys spending time with family and friends and is an avid runner.
