Founder / CEO / Nomster in Chief
Ashley has worked in kids’ educational media for 8 years: on a preschool TV show on Nickelodeon called “Team Umizoomi” and on apps at YouTube Kids and PlaySquare.
She is a 2015 graduate of the Stanford Graduate School of Education's "Learning, Design, and Technology" program. Nomster Chef was developed as Ashley's master's program project at Stanford, completed a fellowship in the University of Pennsylvania's Education School's Education Design Studio EdTech incubator, and was recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign.
She’s been an avid home cook and foodie ever since moving to New York City opened her eyes to the wonders of food, and hopes to share this love with as many kids as possible!
