Ashira Vantrees joined Aimed Alliance in August 2021 as a Staff Attorney. Ashira brings with her extensive experience in researching a wide variety of issues including public health, health education, human rights, women’s rights, and disability rights. Building on her own experiences growing up and facing difficulties in accessing healthcare, Ashira is now a passionate advocate for healthcare access and ensuring healthcare is easily accessible and affordable.  

Prior to attending law school, Ashira worked as a public health emergency planner and outreach coordinator at a small health department in Ohio. This experience taught her the importance of ensuring meaningful access to healthcare medications and services. Ashira’s passion for ensuring access to affordable healthcare led her to attend Florida International University College of Law to learn more about healthcare and the legal system. While in law school Ashira focused her studies on human rights and was an active member of the student body leading both the Disability Rights Law Association and the Florida International University College of Law Moot Court Board of Appellate Advocates.
