After graduating from Swarthmore College, Ashley moved to Philadelphia to work in nonprofit development and communications as a Philly Fellow. She was introduced to the Bicycle Coalition’s work in her first week of the fellowship through an Urban Riding Basics class. She did not take up bicycling in the city until a cancer diagnosis– and the support of the Women Bike PHL community– catalyzed her to shed her fear of riding in traffic and get on a bike. Ashley’s bike served as a powerful tool in her recovery, and she is excited to share the healing and empowering nature of bicycling with others.
You can find Ashley riding her blue Breezer to the Headhouse farmer’s market, to the various urban gardens where she volunteers, or to any one of the area’s local breweries (when she’s not brewing her own beer).
