Ashley Nickloes is a busy woman. She's working toward her master's degree. She has four living children (she specified that a fifth died after a preterm birth). And when I caught her, she was in St. Louis, doing simulator training for her role as a pilot in the Air National Guard.
"You know, you can only be busy a hundred percent of the time," she laughed. "You get enough sleep when you're dead."
On top of all that, she also ran for Congress in Tennessee last year, but lost in the primary.
