Communications + Engagement Coordinator
Ashley has lived in Bend, OR since 2018, moving west from Raleigh, North Carolina. She found ReachAnother through a happy accident while researching volunteer opportunities with international nonprofits in Central Oregon. After connecting with ReachAnother’s Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Marinus Koning, she began supporting ReachAnother through grant research and communications work. She was thrilled to receive an official invitation to join the team in February 2020. Her main responsibilities include developing and executing strategic communication plans for high-priority projects that support ReachAnother’s work to increase medical capacity in Ethiopia and coordinating communication efforts through social media platforms, website development, media relations, and outreach events. She is passionate about ReachAnother’s partnership-focused approach through local collaboration, which has moved the needle on neural tube defects in Ethiopia—truly making a difference in the lives of thousands of children and their families.
In addition to Ashley’s role at ReachAnother, she also serves as the Community Outreach Specialist for the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC), where she builds trust and cultivates long-lasting relationships with community partners to ensure public support for critical transit improvements in Central Oregon. Prior to joining the staff at COIC, Ashley worked for a regional transit agency in Durham, NC, where she was responsible for community engagement on behalf of a $2.3 billion transit plan in one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation. She is also a board member for Commute Options, a local nonprofit that promotes and encourages active transportation, and she serves as a program committee member for the City Club of Central Oregon, which creates community conversation about timely topics through monthly forums. In her spare time, she loves to hike with her partner and their boxer-mix pup, ski, camp, and float the river.
