Ashley Taylor Anderson
Senior Marketing Manager
Ashley joined the Inside Network marketing team in 2012 after 7 years of wrangling with physics, astronomy, and chemistry authors as development editor for Pearson Science. When she’s not working marketing magic, you’ll find her in the kitchen whipping up delectable pastries, writing in a café, cursing at a sewing machine, or losing herself in a fantastical book. As a recent transplant to New York from San Francisco, she still marvels at commonplace miracles such as snow, high-volume foot traffic, and old buildings.

Michele hails from the South and holds a degree in Comparative World Literature from North Carolina State University. When she’s not tweeting, posting, or plusing, she spends her time backpacking, exploring the depths of the Internet, and catering to the needs of her demanding cat, Stravinsky.
