Ashley joined the legal profession after a previous career in the automotive business, spending more than a decade and a half managing a network of car dealerships that consisted of Ford, Hyundai, Kia, and Suzuki. While there, she earned her master’s degree in Human Resource Management from the University of Southern California. Throughout her career, she has trained employees on and worked with various HRIS systems such as ADP, dealer management systems Reynolds and Reynolds and CDK Global, and learning management systems Blackboard, Canvas, and Matrix, as well as other SaaS products. She also developed and implemented an innovative benefits program that digitized her company’s benefits enrollment process and expanded employee offerings.
Her passion for legal writing and research motivated her to earn her law degree from Temple University while still working full-time. After clerking for the Magistrate Judges in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Ashley joined the Small Business Administration during the pandemic, reviewing and assessing SBA loans and commercial insurance policies. Her years of memorizing technical car information have helped her in the legal world become an excellent legal and tech jargon distiller: she learns how complicated things work and then translates them to make them simple. A self-described “functional” tech user, she’ll overdose on all the videos, pore through all the instructions, and proudly explain it to everyone else.
As a kid, Ashley and her brother were enthusiastic members of their neighborhood Nintendo club. They’d relish the hours they spent playing RBI Baseball and memorizing the Contra cheat code. An avid athlete and traveler, her long-term goal is to run a half-marathon in every state (she’s got 10 so far!), and she is the past winner of several memorable slow bicycle races. She’s also logged over 200 hours as a Crisis Volunteer, text counseling those who need help getting to a calmer state in an emergency. As Ashley is a chronic over-signer-upper, her husband often encourages her to join Activities Anonymous. If you hear her talking about a new hobby she’s starting, please remind her to put her feet up and the sign-up pen down.
