Ashley Claire McCormick intends to commission in the United States Army as an Entomologist. As an entomology graduate student at the University of Georgia, Ashley focuses extensively on medical pests and their control, which will continue in her Army service. Ashley has had the opportunity to attend pest control conferences and take relevant coursework. Ashley can apply her knowledge of pest management strategies to a field setting, serving soldiers on training and deployment missions. She has been fortunate to research kissing bug, mosquito, and tick management and is eager to apply her experiences to a broader audience. She plans to become a Board-Certified Entomologist (BCE) under the Entomological Society of America and keep up with pest management research and mitigation strategies. Collectively, these experiences have equipped her with the knowledge and critical thinking to effectively aid the armed forces in a field setting, especially in controlling medical pests such as mosquitoes, ticks, kissing bugs, and phlebotomine sand flies.

Ashley Claire McCormick is the daughter of Diane and Thomas Dombrowski and graduated from Northgate High School in Newnan, Georgia. Among her many accomplishments at UGA has been becoming a CAES Ratcliffe Scholar, National Beta Club Scholar, Georgia Scholar, Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation Environmental Scholar, and American Royal Seaboard Scholar while keeping her honor level grades. She spent three years raising puppies before moving into guide dog work with the Guide Dog Foundation.  GPCA is honored and excited to count Ashley Claire McCormick as one of the Bob Russell Entomology Scholarship Recipients. Congratulations!
