She is recognized nationally for her institution-building work in Northern higher education, and is currently establishing and developing a full Campus of Memorial University in Labrador, including expanded infrastructure, educational program offerings at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels, increased research support, and the development of a community-based research and educational farm.

She contributes regularly to move science into policy spheres nationally and internationally, and is a regular media contributor. Before coming to Memorial University, Ashlee held a Canada Research Chair (Tier II) at Cape Breton University.
