Ashley started her career in the biotechnology sector, working directly with patients and physicians to develop new drug therapies. She managed clinical trials for the treatment of macular degeneration, cancer, hypertension, high cholesterol, and rare retinal disorders. She experienced first-hand the challenges of managing a medical practice and getting new drugs to market quickly and safely.
Ashley then applied her scientific training to the energy sector, working for the Department of Energy during the day and attending law school in the evenings. She saw how some of the most interesting challenges played out across the region, such as integrating renewable energy sources into the grid, creating an energy imbalance market, and setting wholesale power and transmission rates.

Outside of Immix, Ashley enjoys making fused glass artwork, woodworking, and diving with her husband.
