Ashley has been a direct report to me for many years. In that time I have known her to be a passionate, dedicated, and creative mind. She conquers whatever task she aspires to. She first came to me as a desktop publisher and since then has shown her talent and expertise as a designer, a 508 specialist as well as a leader in social media. She meets every assignment head on and makes every project and or deliverable stronger by going above and beyond what is asked to do. She is truly a team player and yet a complete go getter. She manages a sometimes overflowing workload with grace and is honest about her capabilities. But I've never known her to not meet if not exceed everyone's expectations. It's been a pleasure to be her supervisor, and I pat myself on the back every day for discovering her talents and bringing her on board.

I have known Ashley since 2015, when I began working with her in my capacity as Senior Interactive/Graphic Designer at Palladian Partners. I have maintained contact with her since departing Palladian for Georgetown University. Ashley was a pleasure to work with in all of the roles she filled at Palladian, including art direction, graphic and interactive design, and creative services manager.
In particular, Ashley's dedication to her craft, attention to detail and quality control, and willingness to share her knowledge with other team members is exceptional. Her presence raised the quality of our entire creative team and made us a more cohesive, collaborative unit. I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again and highly recommend her for any role available.
I had the pleasure of working with Ashley for five years at ICF International. As the graphic designer for the contract, Ashley never skipped a beat. Projects were always completed on time, and expectations were always exceeded. She is very detail oriented, hardworking, and extremely passionate about work and life (she’s an animal lover and is constantly making a difference/impact in this world). Ashley’s energy is contagious, and so is her drive to continue learning about new trends in her field. The knowledge and skills she brings to projects help them to succeed. Ashley is a great asset to any project or team that she works on.

Ashley is one of the most technically savvy, self-motivated, and engaging individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her knowledge of best practices and superior attention to detail is unparalleled. There were many times, when we were under the gun, that Ashley made the difference between a impossible deadline and an impossibly perfect product. She is a truly a talented professional.
Ashley is very enthusiastic, detail-oriented, and knowledgeable about graphic arts and social media. She is a joy to work with and I can always depend on her to give me what I need. I can't say enough good things about Ashley. She is an invaluable member of the NEHEP team at ICF, working on infographics, brochures, proposals---in fact, all manner of publications. I look forward to working with her on more projects.

I worked with Ashley León for over six years mostly on the National Eye Institute (NEI) and National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) contract. Since then Ashley has managed the proposal production, graphic design, and has become the social media expert on the contract. She worked directly with the client and Project Team managers across the contract to enhance all the materials developed under this contract. She is very responsive and extremely helpful in making sure that her internal and external client’s needs are met and that the materials developed comply with Federal regulations. She can multitask under pressure, delivers high quality work is proficient in electronic 508 compliant, HTML formatting, writing social media content, creating designs and concepts for audience-specific communication outreach materials, creating camera ready art work, distribution of material for FTP, and meeting deadlines.
