As an interdisciplinary researcher, Ashlie brings her experience in policy, collaborative governance and program evaluation to her work on regional and national education challenges. She is passionate about connecting teachers and students to resources, information and one another, while ensuring that equity is at the center of the conversation. Ashlie earned her Ph.D. in public affairs and policy from Portland State University, focusing on knowledge sharing in social networks.
Part of equity, to me, is ensuring that research and evaluation do not occur in a bubble. I support Education Northwest’s efforts to ensure that knowledge is produced and communicated in collaborative, accessible and actionable ways.
