VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK

February 23, 2010

Ashley Miles

Each week, WJB profiles one of its volunteers as part of its commitment to recognizing all their selfless contributions to our cause. This week, our featured volunteer is Ashley Miles.

As a newcomer to WJB in 2009, Ashley played a variety of high and low profile roles during the Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival. She spent two days helping us administer our programming from our Festival Headquarters. During our events, Ashley attended to our merchandise table and helped to distribute our audience surveys. Her enthusiasm at this year’s festival earned her a 2009 Rooky Volunteer Award.

Outside of her involvement with WJB, Ashley displays her passion for volunteering with animal care organizations. She donates her time with both Heavenly Creatures and Beagle Paws as a caregiver, foster pet-parent and caseworker. In the future, she plans on lending a hand with the upcoming Juno’s in April.

Ashley is 24 years old and is finishing her education in French, English and Communications at Memorial University. Additionally, she is employed full-time at the Canada Border Services Agency. Ashley’s interests include theatre, writing, film and staying active.

Our hats are tipped to you this week, Ashley!  Thanks for all your hard work
