If someone asks, “What was FosterClub like in the beginning?” We turn to Ashley. She was enrolled in the very first FosterClub All-Star Internship program back in 2004.  Ashley brings valuable experience to FosterClub having obtained her degree in Early Childhood Education, her four years spent between Arizona and Oregon's foster care system, 14 years advocating for system change, and with her connections to the foster care community as a whole. Currently, Ashley is the Training and Education Manager focusing on the design and development of FosterClub curriculum content including training materials, training modules, teaching aids and more. She also coordinates events, trainings and conferences geared towards current or former foster youth, supportive adults, foster parents, and child welfare professionals across the united states, assisting #FosterClubLeaders in sharing their stories.
