Ashley Klein is a Commercial Underwriter and the National Business Coordinator with Chicago Title Insurance Company. During her time as an undergraduate student at Appalachian State University, Ashley was introduced to wrongful convictions by one of her professors. She obtained a bachelor’s of pre-law and a bachelor’s of criminal justice and worked for a criminal defense attorney in Boone, North Carolina for three years. It was there that she became more familiar with the injustices of the criminal system. Her passion for justice led her to graduate school at Wayne State University in the Criminal Justice Department where she met Dr. Marvin Zalman. Dr. Zalman further exposed her to miscarriages of justice and introduced her to Proving Innocence.
