Ashley works with print and broadcast media to promote local, state, national and international climate work by UCS, and has been attending the United Nations’ international climate change negotiations since 2015. Before joining UCS in 2014, Ashley worked as a legislative aide and communication specialist in the Wisconsin State Legislature for State Representative Ann Hraychuck, State Senator Jim Sullivan, and State Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson. Her past efforts include fielding a high volume of media requests and responding to tens of thousands of phone calls and emails when Wisconsin became embroiled in a battle over the right of workers to negotiate on wages and working conditions, which resulted in large-scale protests and led the Wisconsin State Senate’s Democratic Caucus to leave the state for weeks in protest in February and March 2011.
