Today, the American Lung Association in Massachusetts welcomed Ashley Carrier as the new Executive Director, based out of their Boston office. Carrier is a Massachusetts native, having grown up in Harvard and currently residing in Pepperell. She joins the Lung Association after completing five years with the ALS Association as the Director of Community Engagement and Events, overseeing regional events and a portfolio of over $2 million.
David Broderick Massachusetts Board Chair for the Lung Association and Senior Consultant at CircleUp said, “On behalf of the Leadership Board here in Greater Boston, I am excited to welcome Ashley to the team and look forward to working together to make a real difference in the lives touched by lung disease and limit those impacted by it in the future.”
Prior to her role with the ALS Foundation, Carrier spent several years in sales positions at Live Nation and Boston College, and previously owned a CrossFit gym, located in Bellingham. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina and an MBA from Fitchburg State University. In her free time, she enjoys being active, running, and hiking, and spending time with her husband, son and dog.
“I’m thrilled to be joining one of the most well-known and impactful nonprofits in the nation,” said Ashley, “and I’m looking forward to creating new inroads for the Massachusetts community to get involved in supporting lung health for all.”
