Ashley McCully is the Tax Foundation’s Development Writer and uses storytelling to grow support for smart, responsible policy. When everyone else sees facts and figures in a spreadsheet, she sees opportunities for reaching people on a more human, emotional level. 

The United States Marine Corps sees to it that Ashley and her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Adam McCully, move as frequently as possible but she will always consider Texas home. She graduated from Baylor University in 2006 with a BA in International Studies, a degree chosen for no other reason than an unexplainable interest in how governments affected economies over time.

Although the two small McCullys, Hank and Julianna, keep her busy, Ashley still finds time to enjoy running, reading, and exploring the local food scene.
