Hi! I’m Ashley! I’m a senior at Elon University in Elon, North Carolina. I am a Isabella Cannon Leadership Fellow. I am the broadcast News Director and multimedia reporter for Elon Local News, an affiliate of Elon News Network.
I was born and raised in Winston-Salem, N.C. I attended Forsyth Country Day School and graduated in 2013 receiving the Hagerman Award and John Danforth Spirit Award. I am also a Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award Girl Scout.
Now I primarily report for Elon Local News and ELN Morning. I co-anchored the 2014 Midterm Election show. And my reporting coverage has even taken me to Selma, Alabama for the 50th Anniversary Commemorative Voting Rights March, and covered the collegeiate perspective at the Iowa Caucuses. Naturally, I am studying broadcast journalism with a minor in leadership studies.
This summer I interned at NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt and the previous summer I interned at WXII 12 News in Winston-Salem.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, shopping, reading magazines, and watch rom-coms!
