Ashley Elisabeth Wagner (born May 16, 1991) is a retired American figure skater. She is the 2016 World silver medalist, a 2014 Olympic bronze medalist in the team event, the 2012 Four Continents champion, a three-time Grand Prix Final medalist, winner of five Grand Prix events (2012 and 2016 Skate America; 2012 and 2013 Trophée Éric Bompard; 2015 Skate Canada), and a three-time U.S. national champion (2012, 2013, and 2015).
Ashley Wagner was the first child and only daughter of Lieutenant Colonel Eric Wagner, U.S. Army (retired) and Melissa James, a former schoolteacher. Wagner was born in 1991 on a U.S. Army Base in Heidelberg, Germany, where her father was stationed at the time. Her younger brother was a skater and competed on the national level.
Because Wagner's father was in the army, she was a military brat when her family moved nine times during her childhood; they settled in northern Virginia when she was ten years old. Besides Germany, she has lived in Delaware, California, Alaska, Kansas, Washington State, and Virginia. Wagner currently lives in southern California but considers Seabeck, Washington her home.
