Hi there. My name is Ashli.
I believe in empowering people through good information. It’ up to content creators to find creative and effective ways to deliver it. From deconstructing dense data to explaining convoluted laws, I’ve created pieces that are easy to understand with the constraints of social media characters — but I’ve also taken advantage of the unlimited space that comes with a web page. See some of my samples here.
As for a personal introduction: I am a semi-recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, living and producing news in Seattle for KIRO 7 News. My hometown is the 901, AKA Memphis, Tennessee. Go Grizzlies!
I love working in Seattle. The political landscape, city’s emerging marijuana industry, and tech boom provides endless questions for a curious journalist. The Seattle market’s thirst for fast news on mobile devices puts me in a great position to deliver as a content producer, especially when it comes to giving information on social media and our digital platforms.
And outside of the newsroom, it’s just stunning out here! Check out this photo I took of Mount Rainier.
So why is this portfolio available? This website is used to share my work for fellowships and conferences. So, if you’re looking for some specific samples or a resume from me, then you’re in the right place.
