About Ashli

As for a personal introduction: I am a semi-recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, who loves reading and exploring. My hometown is the 901, AKA Memphis, Tennessee. Go Grizzlies! I moved to Seattle three years ago for a job in journalism and have been sharing stories ever since.

I love working in Washington. The political landscape, tech boom, and geological features of the Evergreen State provides endless questions for a curious journalist. But recently, I’ve decided to try something a little different.

When not researching or planning a project, you’ll find me somewhere in the mountains. Through my outdoor adventures in Western Washington, I’ve had a renewed interested in environmental conservancy and science.

So I’ve taken a job as Social Media Manager for the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. I’ll tell stories of people and projects in DNR, showcase its acres of recreational land, and share urgent information. If you have an idea of something you’d like to see from the DNR social media accounts, get in touch with me!
