Seasonal Ranger Ashley Peterman


Ashley Peterman

I am originally from Naples, Florida and previously attended Florida Gulf Coast University where I earned my Associates degree. After several family road trips, the state of Tennessee started calling my name and before I knew it, I was transferring to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. I am finishing my senior year this December with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife & fisheries management and a minor in forestry.

I was previously employed by the university, assisting a graduate student in monitoring grassland birds using an autonomous aerial acoustic system at Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge in Madison, Indiana. I have also volunteered for a variety of projects and jobs ranging from mangrove restoration projects on Sanibel Island, Florida, to deer check stations with TWRA, to salamander surveys in the Smokey Mountain National Park.

As of this past May, I have been employed with Norris Dam State Park as a seasonal interpretive ranger where I conduct various programs that appeal to our visitors. My interests include almost any form of outdoor recreation, reading, and of course, wildlife! This summer I look forward to furthering my career and expanding my knowledge as well as gain new experience here at Norris Dam State park.
