Ashley Drum, PA-C is originally from Scottsboro, Alabama. She attended Auburn University where she received a degree in biomedical sciences before going on to UAB where she completed her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. Ashley spent the last two years as a PA on the hospitalist service at Grandview. During her time in internal medicine, her own stepfather was diagnosed with and began treatment for lung cancer. She soon discovered an interest in the rapidly evolving research in hematology/oncology, as well as an affinity for caring for cancer patients. This ultimately led to a desire to pursue a career in oncology, and she joined Alabama Oncology at Grandview in October 2018. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jake, baby boy, Wells, and cat, Kevin.
