Development & Communications
Elizabeth Ashwill attended The Ohio State University where she completed a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science to pursue a career in education policy. Elizabeth began her career working for the State of Ohio immediately following college, and spent time working for the Ohio House of Representatives, Ohio Senate, eTech Ohio, the Ohio Department of Higher Education, OhioLINK, and on a statewide campaign. After her years working in the policy field she chose to seek another way to influence an impact on education through making her then part-time job at the YMCA, full-time. She enjoyed her time working for the non-profit in both the aquatics and child-care departments, and is excited to now use all of her combined knowledge to serve the Pathfinder community.
Elizabeth started as the Director of Development and Communications on the first day of school in September 2018. She is excited to continue to work with children, and in the education field, as well as use her passion for communication to grow the awareness and outreach of Pathfinder.
During this past year Elizabeth and her husband, Jayce, were married in Traverse City (with 20 inches of snow on the ground in December 2017!) and they are both excited to be moving back to the area!
