BA Psychology (UVIC)
Ashley moved to Vancouver Island as a teenager from the east coast. The kind and open-minded people of the west coast, along with the unparalleled beauty of this wild temperate rainforest, instilled in her a burning desire to make the world a better place. At the University of Victoria she studied psychology, specializing in environmental psychology, and for a final presentation researched the importance of knowing your audience when talking about climate change. Years in the service industry taught her to read people and to communicate clearly. She’s loved writing since childhood, and has recently taken up digital media.
This combination of experience, passion, and knowledge, plus a chance encounter in a coffee shop, led her to Iron & Earth. She’s excited about the potential to reach people about something she believes in through writing and digital marketing.
