Ashley is a Services and Ops Engineer at the Mozilla Foundation, building the backend infrastructure to support tools and content developed to pursue Universal Web Literacy. She is on the core team of Sinatra and participates in several other open source projects.
Formerly a NYC Teaching Fellow, Ashley learned the ropes teaching middle school science in Harlem, NYC. Since then, she has spent the vast majority of the past few years teaching web development to beginners, most notably running the NYC Web Development Fellowship in its flagship year. When not headlong in a discussion about pedagogy, she is probably getting seriously fired up about philosophy, language, systems, and/or jokes.
