News 8 Reporter

Ashley comes to News 8 from WHIZ in Zanesville, Ohio, where she had been the morning anchor and a reporter.  Ashley had the opportunity to cover one the biggest stories of 2011 that made international headlines when dozens of exotic animals escaped from a farm near Zanesville after their owner threw their cages open and committed suicide.

She was born and raised in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania just outside of Pittsburgh.  Ashley attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh where she majored in Broadcast Journalism. During her time at Duquesne, she interned at two of Pittsburgh's major news stations, KDKA-TV and WTAE Channel 4 Action News.

Ashley also spent four months in Rome, Italy, working for The Roman Forum publication, Rome's top English-language magazine for the local international community.

When she isn't covering news, Ashley enjoys traveling, watching her Pittsburgh Steelers, and spending time with family and friends. If you ever see her out, don't hesitate to say hello!  If you have a story idea or would like to get in touch with Ashley, you can contact her at
