Georgia Watch is proud to announce the addition of Ashley Wilson as our new Consumer Outreach Director and staff attorney.
Wilson will be the first point of contact for consumers, in charge of connecting people to policy and empowering individuals to assert their rights as citizens. She will develop targeted presentations and conduct outreach efforts to help consumers throughout the state and build support for our issues.
“I can’t begin to express how excited I am to be part of Georgia’s leading consumer advocacy organization. It is my goal to see Georgia Watch expand both in our membership and in the number of lives we’re able to impact,” Wilson said. “I’m looking forward to helping Georgia Watch deepen its community involvement and presence across the state.”
A native of Augusta, Wilson graduated in 2002 from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in Political Science. She received her Juris Doctor from the T.C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond in 2006, and became a member of the State Bar of Georgia shortly thereafter.
Wilson went on to work at the financial and corporate communications firm Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher in New York, where she advanced the business objectives of publicly-traded companies through investor relations.
In 2008, she returned to Atlanta to practice law in her home state, and worked as a trial attorney, representing indigent criminal defendants in Henry County.
“Ashley is passionate about helping people and making a positive difference in the lives of Georgians. We are thrilled to have her join our watchdog team,” Georgia Watch executive director Angela Speir Phelps said. “Her experience in the courtroom and business knowledge make her a strong ally for consumers and a valuable asset to our organization.”
