aSHLEY nELSON (she/her/ella)
eXECUTIVE dIRECTOR/ DIRECTOR OF THE CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS
"As a member of Tri County Community Network since 2014, I have witnessed first hand the commitment that TCCN has to the community it serves. It was here that, I too, realized the passion I have within myself for the healthy development of young children and their families. I have learned that when the community itself is strong and thriving, it then creates a foundation for the families themselves to create a culture of growth at home. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead these fine people who I work with and empower, support and encourage them as we meet community needs and cause TCCN to be an even greater force for good in the region.
We are better together!"
