Ashlee Hackney serves as the fundraising associate for Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation. Prior to working for the Foundation, Ashlee worked as a community relations coordinator at a dental office in Texas, where she learned how important oral health is to overall health. After noticing the oral health disparities in low-income families, she decided that she wanted to continue to work in the oral health industry and educate those on the importance of good oral hygiene. Ashlee is wild about satin floss and wishes they made it in strawberry shortcake and blueberry flavors. In her spare time, she enjoys pampering her dogs, African drum dancing and horseback riding.
