Executive Director, Honor Flight Houston

March 29, 2018


Ashley was raised in Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2006.  

After graduation she worked in the Houston Texas Medical Center at Texas Children’s Hospital as a Research Associate.

Ashley became involved with Honor Flight when escorting her grandfather, World War II veteran Daniel Kelly to Washington, D.C. with Honor Flight Dayton, Ohio.

Upon returning home in 2013 she joined the newly formed Honor Flight Houston as the Development Director.  

In 2014 she became the Chairman for Honor Flight Houston and considers it a profound privilege and honor to serve on the Board of Directors.  

Flying WWII veterans to Washington, D.C. to see their memorials is the very least that she can do to honor their extraordinary contributions to our country. ‘These men and women are our national treasures and should be cherished and honored while we still have them.’

Helping Veterans Visit Their Memorials - Time is of the Essence

Based on recent statistics, we are losing World War II Veterans at the rate of approximately 492 per day. This means there are approximately only 855,070 Veterans remaining of the 16 million who served our nation in World War II. Honor Flight Houston will continue to do whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our Veterans and help our heroes travel absolutely FREE to visit their memorial.
