Get to Know Ashley

"I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland where earned a BS in Psychology with a minor in Neuroscience. Prior to Tepper, I did neuroscience research for five years. I worked for both the military as a contractor and in traditional academia. Most recently, I was a research coordinator in a neurological surgery lab at the University of Pittsburgh.

"My boyfriend and I moved to Pittsburgh for him to get his MBA here at Tepper and I was proud to be in the Tepper Partner’s Club from 2016-2018. I served as the VP of Marketing and Communications and I created the club’s current logo! Now that I have experience as both and partner and a student, I am looking forward to being able to share my insights with anyone interested in applying to Tepper.

"I chose Tepper for several reasons. First, I was excited about the prestigious curriculum and the high level of analytics involved in the program. Second, I love living in Pittsburgh. And finally, I already felt like I was part of the Tepper community and honestly didn’t think there could possibly be a more collaborative place to get my MBA than at Tepper."
