Ashley Tourtelot is a young professional and alumnus of Colgate University with a background in women and gender studies, global history, American political theory, rhetoric, and research. She graduated Magna Cum Laude as an Office of Undergraduate Studies Scholar in May 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Writing and Rhetoric. Thereafter, she moved to the Northshore from a small city in upstate New York to pursue a career in law.
Before joining the team at Casey Lundergan Burns, P.C., Ashley worked as a Senior Legal Coordinator and Writing Specialist at a boutique immigration law firm in Boston. She is passionate about advocacy, justice, and inclusion and remains fascinated by the evolving nuances in history and law. While in college, she worked at a local history museum as an Update Institute Fellow for the summer, where she independently designed an exhibit that brought together aspects of local history with the abolition movement in central New York. Through this experience, Ashley had the opportunity to work alongside and present her research with local advocacy organizations where she grew up, including the Onedia County Freedom Trail Commission and the Utica-Rome League of Women Voters.
As an Upstate New Yorker, Ashley loves to spend time outdoors finding new hiking spots. Other times, she is seen reading a new book, trying a new recipe, or snuggling with her cat, Whiskey.
