Staff Spotlight: Ashton Herbert


Meet Ashton Herbert, a Children’s Program Coordinator at StepUp Ministry! Ashton manages the nursery age group on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for the Life Skills and Alumni programs. She coordinates volunteers, plans classroom activities, and acts as the case manager for the nursery children, helping to connect families to resources and community partners like the Diaper Bank of North Carolina.

Ashton learned about StepUp while volunteering with the Junior League of Raleigh and joined the staff in late 2017.

Ashton's favorite part of her job is seeing the parents' faces at graduation when their child’s name is called, knowing that they made it through the 48-week program right alongside them!

A couple of fun facts about Ashton: She has a twin sister, played college soccer, and lived in Italy for a semester! She loves sports and enjoys baking in her spare time.
