After completing two BS degrees in Anthropology and Natural Resources Management at Grand Valley State University, Ashley enrolled in the Peace Corps Master's International program through the CSUS Department, and in September 2016, she departed for her Peace Corps service as an Agroforestry Specialist in Senegal. Currently, she continues her Peace Corps service through November 2018, during which she will continue extending trees in the region of Kaffrine, working in gender and youth empowerment, writing grants for a school garden and a multi-site diversity training, hopefully starting work for her MS, and always being the last person at the family lunch bowl!
