ASHLEY LINDLER - HEAD STAFF

Hey there!! I'm Ashley Lindler from Columbia, SC. I joined TAW head staff in 2016, fell in love with everything Ton-A-Wandah & swore I'd be back every summer until they kicked me out. I'll be the one chasing after your girls with a camera & making sure you catch sight of all the fun they're having here. We may even bring Vlog-A-Wandah out of retirement (google it for a few laughs)!! In the off season (AKA real life) you can find me dressing up moms & daughters in Matilda Jane, trudging through the woods with my dad, keeping my kids between the lines & telling my dog how much I love him.
