As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at SARAVYC, Ashley will be leading the Canadian Trans Youth Health Survey and will work on various projects related to LGBTQ+ well-being and supportive school and community environments. Outside of academia, Ashley is a research consultant for the Human Rights Campaign and she enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family, attending music festivals, watching women’s soccer, and eating pizza.
