urban sustainability professional
& storyteller

 a little about me:

My name is Ashley Jankowski, and

I work at the intersection of cities and stories. 

I have 8+ years of freelance writing experience, and I am pursuing dual master's degrees in Environmental Justice and Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Michigan.

As a writer, reporter, and urban sustainability specialist, I've spent my early professional career elevating voices and ideas of diverse stakeholders, reigniting civil discourse in urban and rural communities, and empowering individuals to organize and act within the places they call home. A true believer in the power of words, I listen to and amplify stories to promote equity, build resilience, and provide platforms for everyone to be heard.

Here's a collection of my work.
