Ashleigh Ellsworth-Keller began as the coordinator for Experience UGA in fall 2019. Prior to this role, she worked for two non-profits in Vermont for 11 years leading programming and development for youth from low-income housing neighborhoods and people with disabilities, and supervising college students and AmeriCorps members. After 16 years living outside of the Southeast in Vermont and Arizona, Ashleigh is glad to be closer ("but not too close") to family in the Carolinas, and is happy to call the great city of Athens (and the state of Georgia) her new home!
Ashleigh holds a BA in English from Wake Forest University, an MA in Religion from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, and an MA in Sustainable Communities from Northern Arizona University. Her interests include running, hiking, reading, and writing, and going on adventures with her husband and daughter.
