Ashley’s past research experience has been in gastrointestinal health and fungal ecology, but she has since been inspired to become involved in cancer research. She is excited to have received the 2013 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) studentship grant and to be on the Early Detection team. She also sits on the CBCF Run for the Cure Committee (2013) and the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life Committee (2014) in Kelowna. In her spare time, she enjoys racing long distance triathlon (pictured) and is interested in how exercise affects disease susceptibility and progression.
