Chair of the Board | Director of Digital Project Management, Walmart
Hi, my name is Ashley, and I am the Chair of the Board for the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter. For the past three years, I have served on the board for the NWAWS in some capacity. At the NWAWS, we do not discriminate against anyone who needs our services because domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. If you feel unsafe under your roof, we will help you!
In me free time, I enjoy yoga and reading. Thank you for your support of our organization!

Hi, my name is Angelique! I have been on the board at the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter since 2014. I love the NWAWS because it supports survivors of DV in so many ways, removing barriers to success no matter one’s particular situation. Moving forward from a violent situation can be one of the biggest challenges a person will face, and the NWAWS does everything they can to alleviate obstacles and support those in need at any hour.
In my free time I collect art, travel, and spend time with my three kids and two dogs!

Emily here! I have had the honor of being on the board at the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter for a little over one year now. My favorite part about my position on the board is serving the community I live in through my gifting as an attorney!
When I am not serving on the board, I love to hike, do yoga, read, be a tourist, and I am also a proud baseball mom.

My journey as a board member for the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter started three years ago, and I have learned so much during that time. I am amazed how the community stands behind us and supports the NWAWS during the most challenging times. Also, I love how much passion the NWAWS staff has as they work to break the cycle of DV in NWA. It’s just very inspiring, and I continue to learn from the NWAWS every day.
Some of my hobbies include spending time with family, playing tennis, or reading a good book!

Hi there! My name is Deanah, and I am currently serving my fifth year on the board at the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter. One of my favorite things about being on the board is knowing that the NWAWS is helping immediately in crisis situations. Also, I love how the NWAWS can provide long-term support with our outreach services even after clients move out of shelter.
When I am not at work or volunteering, I love to work out, shop, eat, and spend time with family and friends.

Garrett here! I have been serving on the Board of Directors for just a few months now. It has been a good learning experience, and I love the work the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter does. I love the passion and drive to assist within the community, and the collective effort by everyone involved in the organization to get things accomplished! My girlfriend and I really enjoy hiking and other out door activities, and our dog does, too! Crossfit and working out are big parts of my life, as well as spending time with family and friends.

Hello, my name is Mary, and I first joined the board at the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter in 2017 after several years of volunteering. The thing I love most about the NWAWS is that it has a direct impact everyday on our community, and it gives people a chance to make a change that can save their lives. Also, I love that we are passionate about educating individuals in NWA about domestic violence so we can stop the cycle of DV in NWA.
In my free time, I love being outside, especially at Grand Lake in Oklahoma and all the great trails in Bella Vista and the rest of NWA.
