Ashley Duncan, Executive Director

I would like to first start off by thanking you for taking the time out to learn more about me. I am an African American woman who was born and raised in Birmingham, Al (Roll Tide). I’m a mom to four children and the youngest sibling out of three. 

Growing up within Birmingham Alabama where resources are scarce and the need for social justice awareness more prevalent, I felt like continuing to live there was hindering my full potential within my educational journey. I am a first generational college student who held the visions of seeing myself outside the realms of poverty. One day I found the courage within myself to take a big leap of faith to pursue my pathways towards my educational success, so I decided to move to Lakewood, Washington to attend Clover Park Technical College. While attending Clover Park I earned an AAST-Human Services with a certificate in Chemical Dependency. I also, served on the hiring committee of Clover Park Technical College. The Hiring committee was chosen to hire the Director of Equity & Inclusion, the Lead Ambassador for the Student Leadership and Service Center at Clover Park Technical College. After attending Clover Park, I enrolled into the Evergreen State College and earned my BA in Business Administration with a focus in Public Policy and Education. Now I am looking to give back to my community and help build relationships that guide disadvantage individuals towards pathways that will help them create upward bound mobility.
