Ashley is a pragmatic progressive and a fierce environmental protector. Born and raised in Chester County, Ashley worked her way through college and took out student loans to attend West Chester University, where her passion for sustainability and the environment was born.

Over the course of her education, she studied environmental geochemistry, soil science, mineralogy, hydrogeology, historical geology, field geology, structural geology, and even minored in Russian and Astronomy. She completed geological fieldwork in northern Russia and studied active volcanoes and gas emissions in Hawaii.

In Harrisburg, Ashley will fight for clean energy policies and support transitioning our state to 100% renewable energy. She will work to expand voting access and stand up to any politician who attempts to eliminate ballot drop boxes or pass more restrictive voter ID laws. Ashley will always stand up for abortion access and ensure that every child, no matter their zip code, can receive a quality public school education - safely. Ashley knows that if we work together and focus on facts - not fear, we can tackle the major problems facing our state - climate change, COVID relief, education funding, reducing gun violence, reducing inflation, and addressing our crumbling infrastructure.
