She has used her languages to facilitate communication while working as an Italian, Spanish and French medical interpreter in hospitals, as a legal interpreter and as a translator of documents in the medical, legal, arts/culture and journalism spheres.
Growing up in NYC, Ashley also had a passion for music & singing and sang in the Metropolitan Opera Children’s Chorus.
