Ashley is a Botanist and Crew Leader with IAE’s Habitat Restoration Program. Originally from San Diego, she completed both her Biology and Botany degrees in Oregon, at Southern Oregon University and Oregon State University, respectively. Since 2014, she has led field crews monitoring several T&E species around the Willamette Valley, including Bradshaw’s lomatium (Lomatium bradshawii), Nelson’s checkermallow (Sidalcea nelsoniana), and Kincaid’s lupine (Lupinus oreganus). Additionally, she has participated in the collection of seed from native coastal prairie species to be used for habitat restoration at Nestucca Bay NWR, benefiting the Oregon Silverspot butterfly. When the field season ends, she can be found working on reports and contributing to the development of a geodatabase for T&E species.
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys spending time with her young daughter, Pearl, friends and family, gardening, hiking, baking, and indulging in the local food and brews of the Willamette Valley!
