Ashley is a landscape and urban designer with a strong design interest in connecting large-scale landscape narratives to the design of the everyday built environment. Prior to joining GGN, her work has transformed abandoned sites into innovative public spaces from cultural plazas in Miami to large urban waterfronts piers and parks throughout New York City. Enticed by the challenges of construction, materiality and detailing, Ashley has realized many of these projects from concept through execution.
Ashley earned her Master of Landscape Architecture degree at the University of Pennsylvania. While there she explored her interests in analytical research and drawing and was awarded a traveling fellowship to study the National Tourist Routes in Norway. She also contributed research and illustrative work to Kate Orff and Richard Misrach’s book, Petrochemical America.
Since moving to Seattle, Ashley enjoys setting off on long camping trips and revisiting the wilds of the Pacific Northwest.
