A proud Hall County native, Ashton graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2013. 

Ashton started her career in marketing and has since worked for the Governor’s Office, the Zell Miller Foundation, and the Georgia State Senate. She is currently the Assistant Director of State Government Relations at Augusta University. 

When she’s not working, you can often find her traveling, hiking or sitting on the best patio in town. Ashton credits the faculty and staff at UWG for providing an amazing foundation and helping her build her successful career thus far and she looks forward to continuing her service on the UWG Alumni Board of Directors and as the Chair of the UWG Atlanta Chapter.
