Curriculum and Evaluation Manager

Ashley served as Co-Director of the Harvard Chapter of Science Club for Girls from 2018 to 2020, where she helped re-establish the Mentor Chapter at Harvard. She has been a Mentor with Science Club for Girls for six years now. In 2021, Ashley graduated from Harvard College with a B.A. in Neuroscience and Social Anthropology, a Secondary Field in History of Science, and Language Citation in French. After graduation, she completed an MPhil with Distinction in Health, Medicine, and Society at the University of Cambridge, as the Lionel De Jersey Harvard Scholar. She also holds a Master of Science from Harvard Medical School. Passionate about equity and accessibility, Ashley has loved witnessing students become emboldened as young scientists through Science Club for Girls. SCFG has, in turn, deeply empowered Ashley as a scientist. She is ecstatic to be a part of this incredible organization which has been transformational for herself and countless others.

"I am deeply inspired by Dr. Jeanne Spurlock, who became a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist after her own experiences grappling with medical racism. As Deputy Medical Director of the American Psychiatric Association and a leading member of the Black Psychiatrists of America, Dr. Spurlock championed mental health equity for the Black community throughout the twentieth century."
