Ashley is a senior product developer with our Smart Mobility and Automated Vehicle (AV) Accelerator teams. Her career began by developing leadership, analytical, and technical skills as an urban designer, in which she discovered a passion for resolving access and equity issues through innovative mobility and design solutions.
Experience with traditional urban design projects such as comprehensive plans, vision plans, and corridor studies allows Ashley to bring a community and design-based perspective to Smart Mobility. Her focus on automated vehicles includes feasibility studies, concept plans, and product development and management. She is leading the AV Accelerator’s Education Product Line, where her first initiative is to develop an online learning center for education, training, and professional development—an intuitive, one-stop-shop on all things AV.
Outside of work, Ashley likes to walk her dog around her historic neighborhood and settle in with a beer on her wrap around porch. She is fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming a licensed architect—only 100 experience hours and 2 tests left!
