Ashleigh graduated from Hollins University with a double major in French and International Studies. Ashleigh’s undergraduate degrees and time spent studying abroad fostered her love and appreciation for other cultures. She went on to receive a J.D. from the Charleston School of Law, where she served as Associate Editor-in-Chief of the Federal Courts Law Review and a member of the Honor Council. Following graduation, she attended The George Washington University School of Law to earn her LL.M. in International & Comparative Law, with a focus on immigration and international human rights law.

Ashleigh has spent much of her career in Financial Servicing and Claims, while dedicating her pro bono work to providing representation in humanitarian-based immigration matters. As it has been her longtime dream to practice employment-based immigration, she is thrilled to join Sumner Immigration Law.
