NAEP Announces New Staff Hire
NAEP is pleased to announce the hiring of a new employee, Ashley Kmiecik, as our new Business Development Associate. In this role, Ashley will focus on building the NAEP sponsorship program with our vendors and NAeProcure, our new contract library repository.
Ashley brings more than 8 years of event management and business development experience to NAEP. Her career started at the YMCA of Greater Seattle where she began working on a successful $2 million capital campaign. Her passion for relationship building and project management grew as she started a new path at City of Hope Cancer Research Hospital. Ashley spent 4 years there working with the Pacific Northwest Food and Beverage Industry on various fundraising campaigns including galas, auctions, and golf tournaments. Another opportunity to further her career in project management came when she accepted a position at MRA Services as a Conference Experience Manager. Her knowledge of corporate events was utilized in the planning of trade shows and annual meetings. That is where she was first introduced to NAEP and instantly welcomed to the team. Speaking of team, when Ashley isn’t working in the office, the former USA Rugby standout is on the field with her Seattle Rugby teammates. Her love for rugby has taught her many lessons in hard work and determination. If there is any other free time in the day, you can find her paddle boarding, traveling or playing with her two dogs.
