Picture of poet Ashley Kuhn


Ashley Kay inhabits the intersection between art and science. She’s an environmental scientist with over ten years of experience in sustainability and has devoted her career to understanding and preserving the natural world. Ashley’s love of nature is matched only by her passion for poetry, which she’s been crafting for over two decades.

She received her BA in botany from Miami University, where she first published a poem, and then went on to earn a PhD in plant biology from the University of Illinois.

At home in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ashley can be found spending time with her husband, Dave, and their dog, Willow. They live on 14 wooded acres called Lost Fossil Forest—a suburban nature oasis.
