3Rivers Community Development Manager, Ashlee Guthrie, is passionate about helping people explore financial wellness and investing in our community.
Ashlee earned a bachelor’s degree in nonprofit management from Manchester University in 2009. Through her time in working retail, Ashlee gained management experience and learned how to provide outstanding customer service. Later, while working for a local foundation, Ashlee built lasting relationships through grant making, worked in database management, and led her team through the grant process. She credits her involvement as a youth philanthropist with the Noble County Community Foundation for guiding her into the philanthropic sector.
In her free time, Ashlee serves our local communities by volunteering at Dayspring Community Church in Auburn, participating in the Noble County Young Professionals Network, and serving on the grants committee at the community foundation. Ashlee and her husband, Michael, love the hometown atmosphere of Kendallville and spend the majority of their time with family and friends. They love to play video games and travel to warm places with sandy beaches.
