Director of Community Impact
It helps that Ashley has a strong background in early learning as she leads the United Way of Wyoming Valley’s Dolly Parton Imagination Library program and Reading Buddies in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District. She also helps coordinate many of the organization’s education initiatives and helps in the grant evaluation process.
“There are many initiatives that have directly helped families,” she said. ” Whether we provide a new set of books or basic hygiene items, it means the world to see a child so happy while we know we are doing whatever we can to help them be successful.”
Before joining the United Way team, she was an administrator at an early learning center, and volunteered on United Way’s Success by 6 committee. “When the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at the chance to join the Community Impact department,” she said.
When not spending time with her husband, Ashley enjoys taking photos and writing fiction.AWinslow@unitedwaywb.org
