Ashley Battles grew up in Lenexa, attended De Soto High, and graduated from KU. After graduation, Ashley made it his goal to build his own insurance agency from the ground up. He spent 20 years building his client base with a captive company and was disheartened by the way the insurance industry was changing. In 2011, when he realized he could no longer offer his clients the best rates & coverages they needed, at prices they could afford, he took a leap of faith and decided to start his own Independent Insurance agency. Ashley now resides in Olathe with his wife and four children. He enjoys watching and coaching sports, playing the guitar and outings with the family and friends.
