“Having the ability and love to impact one life can lead to big changes.”

Ashley spent over a decade living overseas working with vulnerable communities and coordinating refugee assistance in the E.U. Her experience living abroad taught Ashley how having the ability to impact one life can lead to big changes and connecting with communities shatters the idea we are all different.

Ashley’s career has spanned nearly two decades in strategic communications and stakeholder engagement expertise in federal and private sectors, collaborating with C-suite executives on organization strategy and vision. In the federal space, Ashley delivered solutions in organizational change management, public policy challenges, and legislative implementation.

Previously Ashley served as a Program Officer supporting the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) capacity-building programs. In 2016 Ashley served as the Director of Development and Planning for OK Mozart, where she managed a summer conservatory and OK Mozart’s annual multi-day festival. In 2012, she served as the Community Liaison Officer for the U.S. Department of State in Dakar, Senegal.
