Ashleigh is an alumna of the program from 2008. She began her journey with NTLP because of her father, Daniel Medal, who is an alumnus of the program from 1992. After graduating high school Ashleigh came back to volunteer as a Group Leader at NTLP’s summer leadership camp. She joined the Alumni Committee in 2013 and was appointed to the NTLP Advisory Board in 2016 before officially joining the team as Operations Coordinator in 2017. Through the years, Ashleigh grew with NTLP and even through hardships has stayed on as the Volunteer Camp Program Manager in 2019. She now serves as the Program Manager and works alongside the Board of Directors to create and implement quality programming for youth. She currently resides in Downtown Sacramento with her cat, Arya. She loves to cook, bake the best blueberry muffins, play board games, and spend time with the people she cares about. Some of her hobbies include painting, powerlifting, reading, crafts, and caring for her plants.
