Ashley joined the agency in 2011 as an associate supporting MG’s business development efforts. In that role, she coordinated with MG strategists to identify and respond to new project leads and manage MG’s proposal process. For over three years, Ashley worked across departments to track opportunities and relationships, leverage community and industry engagement, and execute marketing tactics on behalf of the agency.
Prior to her time at MG, Ashley worked in the legal field as a client services manager for a litigation support company. There, she directed the development of the company’s new website and initiated a rebranding push to include a focus on sustainability and environmental awareness. She also spent three years in the media room for the Portland Trailblazers as a media host and stats runner.
Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and playing with their rescued dog, cheering on her favorite sports teams, and snowboarding and hiking in the beautiful Oregon wilderness. Ashley earned her bachelor of arts in public relations from the University of Oregon.
