Ashley recently finished her Master of Research in Tropical Forest Ecology at Imperial College London. She had fallen in love with the tropics as a young teen when she was given the chance to travel to the Peruvian Amazon, and has since been taking every opportunity to venture closer to the equator. Her time as an undergraduate at Emory University took her back the same location in Peru and solidified her interest in tropical conservation. Her academic career has taken her around the globe to countries like Trinidad and Tobago, Panama, Malaysia and Madagascar. Ashley hopes to bring others to these places through her work, and to help readers reach a greater understanding of the environmental issues facing our world. She has long held a passion for writing and values the ability to communicate with a wide spectrum of audiences. Moving forward, she hopes to work in a career that bridges the gap between science and policy to make effective conservation a reality. Ashley is equally passionate about conservation in her native ecosystem in the Piedmont region, and has a special affinity for the native salamanders and oak trees. At her home in the D.C. suburbs, Ashley enjoys trying new recipes, reading literature and filling her bird feeder for the neighborhood squirrels and the occasional bird.
