Prior to joining Neva’s team, Ashley spent over two years in the contract research industry as an Associate Scientist. In this role, she was responsible for running a variety of analyses on large molecular weight, biologically active compounds to determine individual physical properties and quantifying related analytes within the drug substance or drug product.
These analyses were all performed while strictly adhering to cGMP protocols and included HPLC, capillary isoelectric focusing, capillary electrophoresis, gel electrophoresis, UV-spectrophotometry, and coagulation assays.
In addition, she was responsible for executing stability studies and regularly performed release activities for commercial stage drug products. She has also been thoroughly involved with method verifications, bridging studies, and analytical method transfers.
Preceding her involvement in the pharmaceutical industry, she was employed as a QA Regulatory Technician for a GMP food flavor manufacturer where she was responsible for writing technical documentation for commercial products.
Furthermore, Ashley spent two years working as an undergraduate analytical chemistry research assistant studying nutrient density profiles of Lake Michigan before graduating with a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
