Ashley Cooper

Board Fellow

Ashley joined Zeno’s board as a Board Fellow in August 2018. Through this program, business students at the University of Washington have the opportunity to join the board of a local non-profit as a non-voting member to learn about the structure of non-profit boards and gain experience for future community engagement.

Ashley is currently an MBA student at the University of Washington and spent the previous 6 years enlisted in the U.S. Navy as a nuclear electrician. She was drawn to Zeno’s confidence building approach to math learning, and is excited to have the chance to have an impact in the lives of kids and families who need it most! Ashley’s own positive relationship with math began with her algebra teacher Mr. Fitzgerald, who made math fun by teaching “various mnemonics and ‘tricks’ to help with math instead of just expecting memorization and immediate understanding.”

When not inspiring kids to love math, you can find Ashley at home with her husband and daughter, hiking, or trying a new brewery!
