Ashley Dedmon is the Simulation Coordinator at Ozark Technical Community College’s Simulation Center. She received an associate’s degree in Medical Assisting from Cox College and a bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Drury University. Ashley is a Registered Medical Assistant. She has over three years of experience in clinical simulation. Ashley is a member of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and the American Medical Technologists.
Ashley and her husband, Chris, have three children, Breanna, Harper, and Bowen, along with two dogs, Bentley and Wrigley. They hope to soon add a few farm animals to the mix. In her spare time she enjoys reading and watching baseball.
Ashley’s favorite thing about simulation is that it provides students a “safe zone” to practice their skills and build confidence in their abilities before entering the healthcare field with real patients.
