Founder and Executive Director
If you took all of the good qualities a person could have and mixed them together you would get Ashley. Ashley is as kind, caring, and genuine as a person can get. While battling her own illness, working part time, and attending college full time, she finds a way to bring happiness to so many children who are suffering from an illness. Her passion and determination is contagious.
Alexandra is Ashley’s best friend. She makes everything look easy. Nothing is too hard for Alexandra and she will always drop everything to help. Alexandra is pure and honest. With Alexandra’s big heart and devotion, we can do anything. When Alexandra isn’t working for the foundation she loves to watch her brother Chris play hockey and spend time with her family.
Dianne has an Accounting degree and an MBA. In recent years, Dianne has worked as an Auditor and Treasurer for a number of school districts on Long Island. In January, Dianne will be joining National Asset Management as a Financial Consultant. When Dianne isn’t working or busy with her two children, she has enjoyed being a softball coach, religion teacher and a member of various PTAs, including two years as the Massapequa Jr/Sr. PTA Treasurer. We are so lucky to have Dianne on our team!
Noreen is Ashley’s mom. She has been with Ashley every step of the way through her diagnosis and treatments. Noreen is always looking for new ways to help the children and their families. She assists us with our fundraisers, and with the day to day operations of the foundation. Her determination and persistence always keeps us on track. With Noreen’s help, we know we will be able to enrich the lives of so many children!
Eileen started volunteering with The Ashley Wade Foundation in 2013 and is thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful cause. She went to Binghamton University and spent over 13 years working in Human Resources. She is currently a stay at home mom to her three children and lives in Massapequa, NY with her family. We are honored to have Eileen as a board member.
Susan is mom to Superstar Dylan who bravely battles Crohn’s Disease. She is the first person to offer words of encouragement, and a helping hand. Her determination and creativity will allow us to bring happiness to more Superstar families. We are honored and lucky to work alongside Susan. With Susan’s passion, we will do amazing things.
