NLU Collections Assistant
Ashley grew up in the creeks and forests around DFW, but truly discovered her passion for the environment while obtaining her Biology degree at the University of Alabama. While in Tuscaloosa, she worked in the university’s herbarium mainly digitizing specimens. After graduation, she wanted to continue working with plants and is elated to have found a position at BRIT to do just that. Ashley is now a NLU Collections Assistant, responsible for curating the recently acquired University of Louisiana at Monroe (NLU) herbarium collection of 470,000 specimens. Her primary goals include ensuring the security and accessibility of the herbarium collection.
