When Ashley fell into fundraising back in 2004, she had no idea how one career decision would help to change organizations and communities for years to come. After being at the University of Colorado for over two years, she joined the Marcus Institute for Brain Health in March of 2018 to help bring diverse funding streams to allow even more Veterans to go through this transformational program free of charge. In her role, she works with benefactors that are equally as passionate about Veterans and traumatic brain injury and gives them the opportunity to play a unique role through philanthropy. In addition to being benefactor focused, Ashley finds great pleasure in ensuring that the experts at MIBH have the resources they need to dream big around this population. Ashley works with individuals, corporations and foundations to help guide the philanthropic mission of MIBH.
Ashley grew up in Michigan, where her family still resides, and moved to Colorado in August of 2012. She currently lives in Denver, Colorado where she spends her time baking, hiking, camping and spending time with her husband and three children – Grace, Ava and Miller. Ashley holds a master’s degree in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration.
