ASH SHEPHERD

Treasurer & Nonprofit Technology Expert

Ash grew up in rural areas of Idaho and Montana. He is the Education Director for NTEN and has been in love with the nonprofit sector for over two decades. He has worked in the areas of conservation, environmental education, social work, youth program development, and nonprofit technology. He has an affinity for systems thinking, strategy and rooting everything in the ideals of building community. Ash earned a B.S. from the University of Montana in Resource Management and a Masters in Environment and Development from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa. He has spent the last decade working specifically in the nonprofit technology space in the areas of digital engagement, project management, e-learning and program development. Ash loves bees because of the essential role they play in connecting people and food but also because they are a critical indicator of how humans are impacting the world around them. A beautiful illustration of the current status of the give/get relationship between humans and their environment to help keep us in balance.
