Ashley (Dunbar) McMullen

Class of 2007, Board Member

My time as a student at HVA ultimately led me to my current career as a nonprofit grant writer.
I took my first international trips as a student, visiting Belize, China, South Korea, England, and Scotland.  Fast forward to when I was a teacher, these past trips equipped me with the knowledge and network to lead my students to the Dominican Republic and Honduras. It was during my time in Honduras that I really felt called to do a different kind of service in humanitarian nonprofit work, and grant writing was the avenue. Through international travel and the connections made during that travel, HVA laid the foundations for me to recognize the call and gave me the confidence to follow it. Since then, I’ve felt immensely blessed with my professional and spiritual opportunities to work in my communities, locally and internationally, and help others make positive changes where they live, work, and play.
