Ashley is passionate about real estate and the local housing market. Her goal is to create a positive impact on the community through her career and volunteer positions. She is currently working on the development of “attainable” housing projects throughout Salt Lake County. Her goal is to develop projects that serve under-supplied areas of the market. She is dedicated to creating more affordable housing without sacrificing quality and design.

Ashley graduated from the David Eccles School of Business with a Bachelor of Science in Finance in 2013. She began her career in banking, working in business development and commercial real estate lending. She has spent the past two years at Sequoia Development, managing the development of hospitality, office, and residential projects from land acquisition throughout completion. Ashley has served on the board of the Salt Lake Home Builders Association since 2017. Prior to that, Ashley served on the Salt Lake Parade of Homes Steering Committee.

Ashley recently graduated with her Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) from the Eccles School. During the program, she was recognized as one of five graduate students in the country awarded the prestigious ICSC Graduate Scholarship. She was also awarded scholarships from the MRED program and local CCIM and CREW chapters.

Ashley is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue working with the Ivory-Boyer Real Estate Center and the MRED program as the Chair of the Women’s Council.
