Get to know Ashley Gedra!

How/why did you get started at KED?

The job just sort of appeared at the exact moment I found myself needing a change and unhappy with my previous employer. Substance use is close to home for me, and it was just serendipity!!

What has been the most impactful experience for you during your time at KED?

It’s not a what but rather a who. The kids we’ve been able to make a difference both on campus as well as in our work with the community.

What are you most proud of KED accomplishing this past year?

Our growth as both an organization as well as a team!!

What is something that always makes you smile?

Tacos, my daughter, and my partner.

Ranch or Blue Cheese?

No question at all, blue cheese. Ranch isn’t an option; we live in Buffalo!!

What quotes have you heard that have stuck with you?

“Once I learned to like me more than others did, I didn’t have to worry about being the funniest, or the most popular, or the prettiest. I was the best me and I only ever tried to be that.” -Issa Rae

“I raise up my voice- not so that I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard… We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” -Malala Yousafzai
