Ashleigh's whakapapa is to Ngāti Hinerangi in the Waikato, but she grew up and lives on the Shore.
During her studies Ashleigh was an active member of Te Rākau Ture, the University of Auckland's Māori Law Student Association, serving as Public Officer in 2017. Ashleigh was also a member of the Equal Justice Project and volunteered at the Auckland Community Law Centre for two years.
