English Literature

Ashley Mengwasser graduated from Agnes Scott in 2009 with a BA in English Literature and a minor in Psychology. She is from Buford, Georgia and currently lives in Atlanta. She is an on-air Producer/Talent at Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB). During her 6-year career at GPB, Ashley has co-hosted the GPB Original Production "Georgia Traveler," earning two Emmys for the program. She also recently co-hosted the inaugural "ACC InVenture Prize" invention contest at Georgia Tech, broadcasting live to ACC-area PBS stations around the country. Ashley wrote: “my collegiate training in psychology truly prepared me (or shall we say, 'conditioned' me) to look for social psychology dynamics in the media industry. Understanding how and why people behave as they do is critical when serving as a storyteller and on-camera correspondent." Ashley's favorite undergraduate psychology courses were Abnormal Psychology and Counseling. Her exposure to counseling has proven to be valuable in high-stakes, high-intensity control room environments.
