Ashley Wong is a corporate attorney with a diverse background in technology and data privacy, healthcare, corporate governance, contracts, and regulatory compliance. With experience working with stakeholders at every level, Ashley’s goal is to strategically partner with business owners to achieve their objectives and facilitate business while mitigating risk.
Ashley began her legal career as counsel for a local Seattle startup handling software licensing in the medical space. In addition to working closely with the sales department on B2B sales contracts, she also supported the technology and executive teams on matters of regulatory compliance and data privacy in the highly regulated HIPAA space. As Privacy Officer, Ashley built and managed the company’s HIPAA compliance program and spearheaded the company’s efforts to implement best practices in data security.
Before joining the team at Equinox, Ashley also worked in-house at one of the world’s largest online diamond and jewelry retailers, where she gained experience in the areas of corporate governance, regulatory compliance, and drafting and negotiating contracts, including commercial leases. Ashley expertly collaborates with personnel across departments of a company. She always strives to add value beyond the four corners of a contract by understanding how each project or contract fits into the greater picture of the business.
Though she earned her law degree from the University of Oregon, Ashley grew up in the Greater Seattle Area and now lives in Woodinville with her husband and cats. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, working on home renovations, and traveling. Though she doesn’t consider herself an athlete, Ashley took up cycling with her husband and they rode nearly 200 miles together from Seattle, WA to Vancouver, Canada during the summer of 2018.
