Ashley, 28, is passionate about making sure people in her community and around the world have access to clean water. Ashley’s focus includes researching new strategies to remove contaminants, optimizing treatment processes and operational procedures for water systems, and investigating alternative water sources. Witnessing recreational activities on a nearby river, experiencing three devastating floods, participating in activities on the University of Texas campus, such as Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, and being selected for the Terry Foundation scholarship set Ashley on her career path. Ashley says the direct impact on people—whether it is mentoring younger engineers and students, helping her clients, or improving the quality of drinking water across the country —makes her job exciting and extremely rewarding.
