Program Coordinator, Urban Habitat Stewardship
Ashley joined King Conservation District in December 2017 to help promote stewardship and conservation of streamside habitat. She has a passion for helping others, sharing information, and managing projects that can transform degraded stream buffers into healthy, functional habitat. Ashley developed an interest in stream ecology while attending Western Washington University and earned her undergraduate degree in Environmental Science. She spent the early years of her career working for Google Maps, but the pull of the outdoors brought her back to the field of natural resource management and conservation. Before coming to KCD, Ashley worked for the US Forest Service in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and for the Adopt A Stream Foundation, a non-profit organization based out of Snohomish County. Raised in Kent, Ashley is proud to be back home and serving the residents and communities in the county where she grew up. Outside of work, you can find her hiking, biking, and spending time with her family and four-legged friends.
