Bratcher was born in North Carolina, living in a mobile home, but considers Georgia as her home state. Ashley began acting on stage at age 16, and attended Campbell University, graduating with honors. She briefly worked as a middle school teacher before becoming a full-time actress. After several minor roles, Bratcher starred as the female lead of Christian romance film Princess Cut, and landed roles in War Room and 90 Minutes in Heaven. In 2018, she was approached for the lead role for Unplanned, a drama about the life of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who became an anti-abortion activist. After learning about Abby's testimony, Bratcher was deeply moved and quickly accepted the role. Others discouraged her from working with the film out of concern that she would beblacklisted, but Bratcher quickly accepted the role saying it was "worth it." The cast and crew commended her on her commitment to the role, and Abby Johnson complimented Bratcher on accurately portraying her.
