Business Development Director
Ashley brings an extensive development background to Koch Communications from a variety of industries. She spent her first 10 years working in supply chain management, serving in various roles including purchasing, logistics, financial accounting and working as a business analyst. Ashley transitioned to The Oklahoman after completing her master’s degree, where she served as their Audience Development and Educational Services Manager. At the time of her departure, she was serving on their leadership team, overseeing audience development, educational services, events, promotions and business development.
Ashley is enthusiastic, ambitious and driven. She is passionate about serving others and has found that the fastest way to appreciate Oklahoma City is to invest her time in it through service. Her priorities outside of the office are serving through her church, on various boards and in any way that supports education. Ashley also enjoys assisting veterans in their transition back into civilian life through résumé writing and job coaching. A little-known fact about Ashley: she met her husband on Christmas Day 2010 and maintains that he is still the best Christmas present she’s ever received.
