“As a first generation college student and a first generation child of immigrants, the procedure of attending college has not been without its challenges. When I make my appointments with Ashley, it is because I look forward to interacting with her on a personal and student level and not just checking off ‘meeting with my advisor’.”  Angeliki Neofitos

“When I first met her, I was in the phase where everything stressing me out. One of my strong stressing points was the international experience, which every International Studies student needs to complete. Ashley went to study abroad in China and she knew how the process is handled, where I need to go to talk to, and what I should expect from the journey. Even when I was out studying abroad in SNU located in South Korea, she was able to answer all of my questions that I just threw at her, panicking if I will get my credits or not.”  Joowon Jung

“Ashley is committed to ensuring that her students have a truly meaningful and impactful experience during their time at the U.  She is extremely kind, warm, and caring and has gone above and beyond to help me make connections and become more involved on campus and in the community.  If advising is teaching, she should be called "the Professor" because of her extensive knowledge of not only the major requirements and all of their intricacies within International Studies, but also because of her awareness of global opportunities and events that will greatly benefit her students.”  Riley Greenwood
