Ashley Gomes was born and raised in the Upham’s Corner area of Dorchester. She is of Cape Verdean descent. Both of her parents immigrated to Boston from Cape Verde in the 1970s.
Gomes is no stranger to working in local government. She worked in the City’s Inspectional Services Department before joining the Office of Neighborhood Services team.

In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, traveling, spending time with cousins, and listening to music.
