As the Storyteller-in-Residence, Ashleigh guides the Beeck Center in developing compelling content and amplifying narratives that contextualize the leading-edge ideas of fellows and experts as they build toward scaled positive impact.

Previously, Ashleigh managed communications efforts at the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, a City-affiliated nonprofit which harnesses the innovative spirit of public-private partnerships to invest in meaningful programming that supports vulnerable New Yorkers.
