Greetings! My name is Ashley Range and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new Executive Director
for the Community Cultural Center. I am excited for this opportunity to serve our community and
personally look forward to getting to know everyone better as we take the CCC to newer and better
heights. In the meantime, let me tell you a little more about myself.
While I was born and raised in the Seattle area, I spent a lot of time in the eastern side of the
state on family trips and general adventures; spending lots of time in places like Wenatchee,
Leavenworth, Grand Coulee and Lake Chelan, just to name a few. And while I will always have a special
fondness for the Emerald City, my heart has always been and always will be in the Eastern side of the
I was just a teenager when my parents moved to Oroville back in 2004 and I was pretty open-mined for
not having any say in the matter! During that time, I met my now husband and was married in 2007 right
here in Tonasket. Soon after we moved to Spokane, building our new life together, always making time to
come back home for family, friends and special occasions. However, it was in 2014 when opportunity
arose resulting in us moving to North Dakota of all places! It was there that I rekindled my passion
for all things community when I become the Event Coordinator for the local Chamber of Commerce.
Eventually we found our way back home to Washington when my husband took his current job. in that time,
I worked for North Valley Hospital, making my way to Community Outreach working directly with various
community personalities, programs and events. My goal was the same then as it is now: To enrich our
community by bridging the gaps between culture and progression. Which now seems to be even more
appropriate than ever before. You just never know where life will take you and all you can do is hold
on for the ride!
As new partners in this adventure. hope this very brief glimpse into my life helps in letting you get
to know me a little bit better as I step into this fantastic new role. And of course, you are always
welcome to come on in and say hello yourself!
See you at the CCC!
