Ashleigh holds a BSc in Biology from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MRes in Biodiversity and Conservation from the University of Leeds. She has studied bats in Mexico, acorn woodpeckers in California and ungulates in Kenya.
She has worked for the British Council and for City of Trees, focusing on heritage projects and inclusive community practice.
An inclusive future, for people and wildlife, and bridging the gap between cultural heritage and the environment is at the centre of her motivation.
Fascinated by the diversity found in the UK Overseas Territories, Ashleigh hopes to contribute to the excellent work of UKOTCF.
Ashleigh was appointed in September 2018 as a Conservation Assistant for UKOTCF, and has already been at work, investigating optimising the new web-site and various other tasks.
