Ashley grew up along the shores of Lake Huron in Southwestern Ontario, Treaty 29 territory. She has resided in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with her family since 2019 where she is thankful to benefit from living and working within Treaty 1 Territory, the lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Dakota, Dene, Métis and Oji-Cree Nations.


Ashley received her Bachelor’s of Science – Honors (BscH), from the University of Guelph in 2008. In 2011, she graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BScN). In 2021, Ashley graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Master in Health Evaluation (MHE) from the School of Public Health & Health Systems.


Ashley’s career started at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, where she worked in Bone Marrow Transplant and Hematological Oncology. She then moved to Emergency Medicine – where she worked in a variety of locations from 2012 to 2020. Locations included Toronto, Ontario; Yellowknife, Northwest Territories; and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Throughout her career, Ashley also worked in a variety of rural community health centres, where she provided primary and emergency care to clients. Currently, Ashley works at Riverview Health Centre, as a Clinical Resource Nurse in Palliative Care, and at the University of Manitoba as a Clinical Education Facilitator.


Ashley’s interests lie within climate justice, public policy and evaluation. She is also interested in the ability of the nursing profession to develop in their role as climate advocates – especially as it relates to the detrimental impacts of climate change on human health.
