Ashleigh Crocker grew up in Charlottesville and caught the political bug for the first time in 2005, when she first volunteered for Tim Kaine’s campaign for governor as a high school student. Since then, she has worked on a number of federal, state and, local campaigns, including both of Tom Perriello’s campaigns for Congress in 2008 and 2010.
After graduating from JMU in 2012, Ashleigh started work in the development department at a local non-profit. Since then, she has enjoyed working with a variety of nonprofits and campaigns on fundraising and communications work, and she was thrilled to have the opportunity to move back to Charlottesville and join the team at Progress Virginia.
Ashleigh lives in Charlottesville with her husband, David. When she’s not working hard to ensure progressive victories, she can be found at bettycrockersdaughter.com, where she creates and photographs delicious vegetarian food.
