About Ashley

I am a passionate individual who has dedicated herself to social interaction and public reactions, supported by a strong basis of extensive social and behavioral science studies from a top university. I am looking to utilize both my interpersonal skills, creativity, and general love for science.
I have been tutoring children and young adults since I was 13 years old. I worked in an Enopi Learning Center tutoring children between the ages of 4 and 17 years old in Math, English and Science. Through high school and college, I assisted students in SAT/ACT prep, college admission essays, psychology, and a variety of sciences.

I have a degree in Neuroscience from Columbia University, where I focused on behavioral neuroscience and psychology. I worked in a research lab for the New York Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University Medical Center, where I studied motivational and cognitive deficits in schizophrenia and depression through animal models. Currently, I work as an in-home behavioral interventionist, utilizing the behaviorism/Skinnerism school of thought.

I have always had a passion for writing, with my first poem being published at the age of 13. I have written editorials for magazines such as Allure and VANDL. I continue to write in my free time.

Feel free to contact me! I have a very flexible schedule and I try to make everything as easy and fun as possible!
