Ashley began working in the cannabis industry after the Texas Compassionate Use Act was passed by the Texas Legislature in 2015.  Ashley’s long-standing interest in the cannabis industry and her desire to service cannabis business clients was solidified after she began assisting with a marijuana law business course at Texas A&M University School of Law.

Prior to pursuing a career in the cannabis industry, Ashley worked as an attorney in the oil and gas industry. Experience navigating through complex issues related to oil and gas estate ownership has placed her in a unique position to advise clients on the emerging and rapidly changing regulations governing the cannabis industry, specifically the hemp industry.

Ashley’s current practice focuses on regulatory issues and navigating legislative and regulatory frameworks, such as FDA regulation and state hemp legislation. She regularly assists clients in navigating these regulations and works to develop strategies to help clients expand their footprint across multiple states. As part of her practice, Ashley often conducts comprehensive reviews of clients’ hemp-derived product labeling (e.g., websites, labels, social media content, blogs, etc.) for FDA compliance, and assists clients in drafting marketing and label content compliant with both federal and state regulations.
