Ashley Emerson

Chief Program & Research Officer

In her role as Chief Program & Research Officer, Ashley oversees international programs, social enterprising, and research. A fierce advocate for racial and social justice, she centers the brilliant solutions from rainforest communities at the center of Health In Harmony’s work. With a background in replicating public health and community development programs in low-resource settings globally, she has a niche for growth and impact – supported by thoughtful and inclusive research. 

Ashley spent the first half of her career working in countries throughout Africa, the Caribbean, South America, and South Asia. Working in communities responding to humanitarian crises, a missing link she saw was the environmental impact that the climate and nature crisis were having on vulnerable communities and nations. 

Prior to joining Health In Harmony, Ashley spent several years working in domestic public health on a national campaign for early cancer detection.

She joined the HIH team to help replicate and scale impact. She has a Masters in International Development, Community, and Environment.
