Ashley serves as an IT specialist at the Department of the Treasury in the office of Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. In this role, she provides web and application development services to support the Department’s mission to protect the integrity of the nation’s taxpayer system.
She leads a web team that is responsible for updating and posting content to the agency’s internal and public Internet sites. Recently, the Office of Investigations within the Department became aware of a large-scale scam that threatened the IRS. This was particularly problematic because the agency’s website did not have a sufficient form to collect all the data needed to track the threats.
The Office of Investigations tasked Ashley and her web team to resolve this issue. As a result, they developed a clear and aesthetically pleasing form so instances of the scam could be reported and the data could be successfully collected. Since the form went live, over one million factual reports have been collected.
