After graduating from West Virginia University with a masters degree in integrated marketing communications, Ash found herself in Pittsburgh with big ideas. She started working at TechShop at first just for fun and eventually out of love. She believes wholeheartedly that there's a 'maker' inside everyone and all it takes is finding the right thing to activate it.

Ash enjoys woodworking, dabbling in graphic design, kayaking with friends, camping and good food. She's also rebuilding a '76 Yamaha XS360 in her spare time.
