Ashley Ward

Ashley Ward

CEO/Recruiting Consultant

As the Founder and CEO at Hire For Hope, I come from an extensive background in sales and executive recruiting, with a passion for learning what drives and motivates others. This passion holds true, having obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, and taking graduate courses in Counseling. I am an empathetic leader with a deep understanding of leadership and team development. Aside from running the organization and assisting companies in their talent optimization efforts, I serve on the Board

Kelly Bos

Business Manager

My love for learning has paved a diverse pathway. After spending 20+ years in healthcare I decided to deviate from what was comfortable. Not only did I stray from the industry I knew best, but I left the larger offices/hospitals behind and found myself gravitating towards the smaller, local start-ups. From law, marketing and advertising, and now recruiting and talent optimization, my strengths in office operations and management are where I tend to focus.
