Ashley Burk, Development Assistant
Ashley Burk has been with the BCS Habitat for Humanity Affiliate since 2016. She came with a Habitat background and had previously worked as an AmeriCorps member at the Yakima Valley Habitat for Humanity affiliate and then went on to be a full time employee at the Waco Habitat affiliate.
She says, “I caught Habititis before I even started working with them! I have worked with Habitat for Humanity for all of my adult career. I love the idea that Habitat actually partners with families to better their own situation. A hand up, not a hand out. Housing isn’t just a place to live, it is peace of mind. If you are worried if you can make rent and utilities this month, worrying if your kids homework is done does not seem as important. If you are trying to bathe and put three kids to bed in a one bedroom apartment, a bedtime story might not be a priority. Being able to have a decent and affordable home affects all aspects of life. I hope to continue my career partnering with Habitat as they partner with families in our community.”
She has an adorable dog named Lucas that wears a bow tie every day. In her spare time, she enjoys playing with him and doing some thrift store and flea market shopping! She loves to travel and has been to 7 countries overseas. She is a huge fan of good food and good friends.
