Ashley Melville made the move to Raleigh from Minneapolis, Minnesota three years ago, and hasn't looked back since. After graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College with a degree in Management and concentrations in Biology and Spanish, she put her liberal arts education thoroughly to work by pursuing corporate and nonprofit sales positions which led her to her role as Membership Director here at City Club Raleigh.
Most recently, she has built a strong network in the downtown Raleigh community through her work as the Director of Business Development for the Downtown Raleigh Alliance. In that role, she managed downtown's beloved programs like First Friday Art Gallery Walk and Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week in addition to developing and executing membership and fundraising initiatives.
Outside of work, the majority of Ashley's time is taken up by her two rescued pitbull puppies, Leo and Stitch. However, if the dogs have gotten enough exercise to let her out of the house, she also enjoys rock climbing, scuba diving, salsa dancing, and exploring all that downtown Raleigh has to offer.
