Ashley spent ten years in the nonprofit sector and saw that the cold reality for nonprofit organizations is a lack of resources (both human and monetary), donor fatigue, and the ever-changing landscape of public opinion towards social services. She also saw professionals who were resourceful, creative, resilient, and relentless in their pursuit of social justice.
With Ashley’s working knowledge of nonprofits, experience with fundraising, and technical savvy, she is afforded the privilege of working with CRMs and consultants who are on the cutting edge of data-driven fundraising.
When she stepped into a leadership role at a residential treatment facility, it was clear that there was much to learn more about the dynamic, far-reaching nonprofit sector. Ashley studied and graduated the University of San Diego’s master’s program for Nonprofit Management and Leadership. There, she worked with local nonprofits to develop fundraising plans, consult on board member duties, write budgets, and develop bylaws.
Ashley is a big-picture thinker with an eye on charitable giving trends.
She has witnessed first-hand the power of wealth intelligence to help nonprofit organizations reach their fundraising goals.
