Ashley is a proud Ravenclaw who finished the Appalachian Trail in 2014, the Colorado Trail in 2020, and has plans for more adventures soon. She grew up in North Carolina riding horses, playing the saxophone, and attempting soccer. Her 20’s saw her living in Oulu, Finland and Armenia, Colombia before landing in the Gunnison Valley with her husband, Dan, in 2014. She was previously the executive director of the CB/Mt CB Chamber of Commerce, serves as a Rotarian in the local chapter, and sits on the boards of the CB Friends of the Library and the CB Arts Festival. Ashley is excited to have married her passion for the outdoors with her experience in nonprofit management and development. When not working, she can be found hiking, horseback riding, skiing, or reading a book by the river with Dan and their cattle dog, Sego.
