Ashley Waterbury-Carpenter - 2011-2012
Originally from Blissfield, Michigan, Ashley came to Anderson as a student of Anderson University. During their time as VISTAs, Ashley and her fellow VISTA, Melissa Fenn, helped to develop the framework for our United Way's financial stability work and partnerships. She used the experience to grow connections and continues to be involved in Anderson. In 2012, Ashley was hired immediately following her VISTA position to become the Resource Development Manager for Alternatives Inc. of Madison County.
Currently, she is the Chief Operating Officer at Alternatives Inc. She and her husband, Colt, live in Anderson and are actively involved in community efforts including the creation of Anderson's first disc golf course and the Anderson Disc Golf Club.
