Ashley joined the NewsChannel 12 team in June 2017 and she's ecstatic to be a Greenville bureau reporter, living in the city of her alma mater, East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) Ashley graduated Magna Cum Laude and earned a Bachelor of Science in Communication with a minor in English.
Ashley has wanted to be in news since she anchored both her middle school and high school morning announcements. As a high school junior, Ashley got her first taste of the business as an intern for Fox Charlotte (now WCCB).
While at ECU, Ashley continued to peruse her love of news in a myriad of ways. She interned at WNCT in Greenville, worked for WCCB as a street team member and traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada, twice, to lead fellow students, direct, and produce the Broadcast Education Association Best of Festival Awards show.
Ashley was also involved at ECU as a resident advisor for campus living, a marketing and social media intern for Aramark, a Pitt County Schools Public Information intern, and a proud member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority.
When Ashley is not tracking the happenings in Pitt County and beyond, she can most likely be found taking a boxing class or any new challenging physical feat, binge watching Gilmore Girls, or indulging at Pelican's Snowcones. Ashley loves meeting new people and would love to meet you and talk about any story ideas you may have!
