Prior to joining Bellwether, Ashlie taught science to middle school children in an after-school program in Los Angeles; served as a program specialist at the Texas Education Agency; and, most recently, worked for the Texas Region 13 Education Service Center as a program assistant to the state accountability, state assessment, principal certification, and superintendent certification programs.

Why I do this work: I have a heart for children and believe access to education should be equitable because every child deserves a quality education no matter their economic circumstances. Being a parent and advocating for my own children is just a small piece of the puzzle; I am excited to be part of an outstanding organization that advocates for children on a much larger scale and makes a meaningful impact in education.
