Ashley graduated from Emory University with a degree in Economics and Mathematics and a minor in Art History. During her time there, she took courses that explored the intersections of economics, public policy, and law — becoming interested specifically in work pertaining to mass incarceration and prisoners’ rights. She interned with the Public Defender’s Office of the Thirteenth Judicial District of Florida, where she analyzed evidence from surveillance footage and mobile data files for criminal cases. This opportunity solidified her interest in a legal career centered on supporting underserved communities and deserving clientele. Ashley joins Kaplan & Grady excited to take this passion and apply it to cases involving a variety of overwhelming and unjust circumstances.
Ashley plans to attend law school in the fall of 2025, where she will continue to build her skills as an advocate for communities and individuals in need.
