Ashley DeLatour: Operations Manager
As a business owner, photographer, writer, parent, and human services professional Ashley DeLatour is determined to increase opportunity and foundations of wellbeing for those who are most under-served in Whatcom and Skagit County. Her strong drive for creating equitable systemic solutions in education are informed by her research and work as a paraeducator, low-income student (yay scholarships/grants), graduate from WWU as a non traditional student, and most recently as the Operations Manager for FuturesNW.
Having completed and having had access to advanced education, working for FuturesNW is deeply personal to Ashley as she works to improve awareness and resources for college and career pathways for others. Acknowledging the unfair privilege that she had in achieving her college dreams, Ashley is continually working toward equity in her pursuit of systems change and the removal secret handshakes. Through her work at FuturesNW her passion is to increase social capital for students, provide support resources, and remove barriers in accessing post-secondary education.
