Ashley Baxter

Development Director

Ashley joined Gilda’s Club full-time in July of 2024 as the Development Director.  Ashley received a Marketing degree from St. Ambrose University in 2006 and a Master of Organizational Management in 2009.  Ashley’s first career was in fundraising for her local hospital foundation followed by nearly a decade of work in homecare and hospice where she worked with volunteers and spent time educating both the community and facilities about end of life care and opportunities. Those experiences have made her passionate to return to the non-profit sector where she feels she can expand on her past experiences and contribute to the cancer support community in an impactful way.  

In her free time, Ashley enjoys coaching at her local CrossFit gym as well as being a personal trainer and group fitness instructor.  Ashley has 2 children and lives with her partner Jason in Long Grove, IA.
