From Pennsylvania to Capitol Hill and back, Ashleigh brings a decade of experience in Republican politics to the ColdSpark team.
It was while watching the first inauguration of President George W. Bush on a rainy day in January 2001 that Ashleigh knew she wanted a career in politics—and the rest was history.
Beginning her career in Washington, D.C., Ashleigh worked as the executive assistant for U.S. Congressman Tim Murphy, where she effectively managed scheduling and day-to-day operations for one of the busiest legislators in Congress. After leaving the beltway, Ashleigh returned to her hometown of Pittsburgh where she continued her work with the Congressman, providing constituent services for the 18th district of Pennsylvania.
Since joining ColdSpark in 2017, Ashleigh’s successes on the campaign trail include advising an underdog race for District Attorney that unseated a 16-year incumbent by more than 8 points, helping to manage a 2018 Super PAC that worked to close a 50 point polling gap in a fiercely contested Congressional race, and organizing the most successful fundraiser to date for the Republican Committee of Allegheny County, in turn helping Republican efforts up and down the ballot in the 2020 elections.
Most recently, Ashleigh served as the Campaign Manager on the 2020 Republican ticket for Pennsylvania Attorney General. In her role, Ashleigh oversaw statewide operations for the multi-million dollar race during one of the most turbulent election cycles in modern political history.
Ashleigh is a graduate of Washington and Jefferson College (go Presidents!) and a true politico at heart. In her spare time, you can find her building up her massive collection of vintage campaign memorabilia and playing with her Basset Hound named Roosevelt.
Ashleigh lives just south of Pittsburgh with her husband, Keith.
