Marketing and Development Manager
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 getting involved with the We Bike PHL (WBPHL) community, which catalyzed her to shed her fear of riding in traffic and get on a bike. Ashley’s bike has served as a powerful tool, 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, or her Fuji Sportif when she’s road racing and mentoring new riders as an alum of the WBPHL Racing Development program. Most recently, Ashley has been exploring Belmont, gravel riding, and cyclocross (as well as doing some weekend bikepacking) on her Salsa Journeyman.
