When not working with ARCC Ashley can be found leading backpacking trips for the Greater Seattle YMCA’s GOLD (Girls Outdoor Leadership Development) all over North Cascade National Park in Washington. She is planning a move to San Francisco, where she will continue her work in outdoor education, a field she is truly passionate about. For her, ARCC captures the spirit of adventure, while providing students and leaders the opportunity to make strong connections with other people and to give back to communities in ways that are both meaningful and extremely memorable. In free time, Ashley loves rock climbing, snowboarding, longboarding, and surfing. She’s also known to build tiny houses, sing karaoke, start a dance party or get involved with any and all sports.
