Project Manager

Ashley is a Project Manager actively contributing to several key projects, including the State Opioid and Stimulant Response 3.0 (SOS) Grant Evaluation, the Infant Mortality Research Partnership (IMRP), and the Quality Improvement Data Support (QIDS) initiatives.

Ashley has extensive healthcare knowledge with over 10 years of experience in public health.  She brings a wealth of experience to our team, having previously served as a Community Engagement Facilitator for OSU's NIH HEALing Communities Study. In this capacity, she played a pivotal role in engaging existing community coalitions and stakeholders to address the critical issue of opioid overdose deaths.  Furthermore, she participated in actively addressing barriers impacting the substance use disorder (SUD) population, ranging from stigma and policy gaps to communication challenges, transportation issues, and funding limitations.  Prior to her tenure with the HEALing Communities Study, Ashley held pivotal roles at a local Substance Use Disorder Provider, where she served as a Coalition Coordinator and Registered Nurse. During her time there, she managed the distribution of Project DAWN Naloxone and collaborated closely with coalition members to address both substance misuse issues and prevention education with an emphasis on children. Additionally, Ashley served as the Assistant Director of Nursing and WIC Department Supervisor at the Jefferson County Health Department, overseeing various initiatives and grants.

Ashley's educational background includes a Registered Nurse Diploma from Trinity Health System and her current enrollment in the RN to BSN program at Ohio State University College of Nursing, with a focus on Substance Abuse and Misuse. Her dedication and expertise make her an invaluable asset to our team as we continue our efforts in these critical areas.
