Ashley HowardAdvisor I’ve had the fortune of being a product of a lifetime's worth of experience in the game of basketball. Growing up in a basketball family I learned early in life that the game of basketball can take you many places and create opportunities and experiences that will last a lifetime. As a former athlete I experienced the triumphs and heartbreak that come along with investing everything into perfecting your craft and then one day being faced with the reality that the ball eventually will stop bouncing.
My ultimate goal is to provide a transformational experience for our student athletes and help them achieve their academic, athletic and social aspirations. In today’s world we need more leaders now than ever. I am committed to cultivating our next generation of leaders and using the game of basketball to move the needle.
