Ashley Hullinger is a 2020 Flinn-Brown Fellow and Program Director for the Water RAPIDS Program (Water Research and Planning Innovations for Dryland Systems), which extends through several counties in Arizona. Much of Ashley’s work revolves around developing accessible tools and approaches to understand complex water resources situations and promote sustainable water management throughout Arizona, especially in rural watersheds. As part of the Cooperative Extension, she works directly with communities looking at issues that span beyond physical water resources to consider the people and history that have contributed to current conditions. Her work with the program has been based primarily in Gila, Pinal, Graham, and Greenlee Counties, leading watershed planning efforts that include scenario planning, geospatial analysis, water supply and demand studies, process design for effective stakeholder engagement, and related research. Ashley holds a M.S. in Urban Planning from the University of Arizona and B.A. degrees in History and Geography from the University of Kansas.
