Ashley joined the JMA team in 2012, and is presently completing her professional licensure with the Ontario Association of Architects. She has made a significant contribution to a wide variety of our firm’s projects both large and small, and is an emerging leader in the practice.


Born and raised in the Niagara Region, Ashley is committed to socially responsible architecture.
