Ashton has worked as an environmental consultant in Western Australia for the past 8 years. She has worked on contaminated land assessments and audits across a broad range of sectors including land development, mining, transport and local government. Ashton has enjoyed getting to visit sites across all parts of WA throughout her career, from Derby to Esperance. Ashton has recently completed her Masters in Hydrogeology at the University of Western Australia and is finally enjoying having weekends to relax. Ashton is an avid West Coast Eagles fan, so there is a small divide in the Perth office during the footy season.
