B.S. International Business, Anthropology, & Spanish
Languages: Spanish & English
In 2008, at the age of 15, Ashley Regan joined G.O.E.S. Mission and embarked on her first excursion to the small town of Luperón. It was in this village that her life truly began. Ashley continued spending her high school summers in Pueblo Nuevo, surrounded by love, compassion, and gratitude. The village inspired Ashley to pursue a career in the field. In 2015, she graduated with honors from the College of Charleston with a B.S. degree in International Business and Spanish.
Her love of children and underserved communities brought her to Camp Happy Days, a week-long overnight camp for 400 children battling pediatric cancer, where she was employed as Program Director. During her college years, tragedy hit home and Ashley’s brother, Daniel, had a very long and dark battle with heroin addiction. In 2011, Daniel finally found his path to recovery and developed a program with the rest of the Regan Family that would be later known as CFC Loud n Clear Foundation. CFC bridges the gap between clinical treatment and real life – a gap that is overlooked and underserved in today’s treatment industry. CFC is a pioneer in recovery and has since been honored and featured throughout the country on Fox 5 News, CBS News, and NBC. Ashley left her loved role at Camp Happy Days to pursue a position as Director of Business Development & Fundraising Events and fight to save lives like her brothers. Ashley is currently responsible for all social media, photography, videography, marketing materials, web design, community relations, press and fundraising efforts. Ashley manages over 250 volunteers and has spearheaded committees while raising over $1.6 million dollars. Ashley is inspired by the power of Integrative Health and holistic medicine. She is currently pursuing a Master in Nutritional Medicine at the University of Western States as well as her Yoga Teacher Training Certification. Ashley, alongside her brother, will be opening a state-of-the-art Integrative Health Center and Holistic Behavioral Center in the Spring of 2019 to treatment mental health and chronic illness using Eastern & Western medicinal practices.
In the summer of 2016, Ashley lead a group of 25 young adults in recovery to build homes in Pueblo Nuevo. She looks forward to continuing to serve the community that inspired so many beautiful aspects of her life through the newly built community center. Thank you to the Kamran Farid Foundation for allowing me to continue to bring love and inspiration to a village that has given me far more in return.
