Meet The Team

Executive Director: Ashley Bride


A graduate of Castleton University, Ashley has extensive experience working in the non-profit sector. She first became involved with UWRC in 2013 as a partner agency receiving funding and then in 2020 as a board member serving as a grantee partner. “I know how vital UWRC is to the community and the agencies funded. I am thrilled to take the experience I have gained to work with businesses and non-profits in a new way. It is important that we continue to grow the resources available to the programs that address our community’s most pressing needs. I am passionate about the ability to be creative and think big when it comes to addressing the health, safety, and well-being of our community. The United Way of Rutland County offers this ability through their Community Impact model allowing for flexibility and out of the box thinking. I am proud to be able to serve our community in this endeavor.”
