Background

Over the course of her 18-year career as a business attorney, Ashley has cultivated a specialty in state and local tax compliance. She has a deep understanding of multistate tax issues, and employs keen insight to bridge the gap between finance and operations. An expert on mergers and acquisitions, Ashley provides her clients with specific and actionable information needed to navigate their tax implications, mitigate their tax controversies, and minimize their tax burden. She is a firm believer that state tax is not as black and white as it may seem, and her true value lies in her ability to solve the “logic puzzle” and find innovative yet practical solutions for her clients. In her spare time, Ashley enjoys spending time with her husband and kids, doing school and outdoor activities. An avid runner, she loves to run 5K and 10K races every few months, and is especially thrilled that her oldest daughter has caught the running bug as well.
