The A Team is here!

Please help us welcome Ashley & Aryn to our Playhouse. They are both interns from St Ambrose spending some time with us here this spring.


My name is Ashley Todorov. I am a senior at Saint Ambrose University in Davenport IA. I am a psychology major and a mom to be in June. I enjoy relaxing with my cup of tea or coffee and reading. I can’t wait to start my internship here at GiGi’s and work with the kids, teens and adults. Individuals with Down syndrome are #morealikethandifferent.

Ashley is tutoring two participants in math this spring and she will also be assisting with Teen Tastic, Fantastic Friends, and various other group programs and tasks while she is here.


My name is Aryn Exline, I am from Des Moines, Iowa. I am a junior at St. Ambrose University studying psychology with a minor in biology. I have been helping with the Prep and Achievers programs here at GiGi’s, which has been a very fulfilling experience.  At home, when I am not working in the grocery store, my go-to activities are playing with and taking my dogs on walks and playing card games with my family.  

Aryn is assisting with the GiGi Prep & Achievers programs, tutoring a participant in math, and will also be assisting with various group programs this spring.

Please help us welcome Ashley & Aryn to the Playhouse by introducing yourself when you are here!
