Ashlee worked for one of our donors and we snatched her up for our Marketing Committee.  Not only has she served on the committee, she has also volunteered hours and hours in our office and during our events.  I have worked with Ashlee the most, but we, as a group, have come to depend on Ashlee as an extension of our staff.  She is passionate about our mission and does whatever she can to further our awareness.  She is the type of person you explain things to once and not only will she do what you asked, she’ll do what you didn’t ask, taking the project to an entirely new level.  We honestly haven’t done an event without her.  When she walks in we all can take a deep breath and know she will take care of everything!
