The Place She is Meant to Be

Ashley Donahue knew her professional interest was niche. She always wanted to work with children with emotional and behavioral disorders and wanted to make a difference in the lives of those who were not fortunate enough to have a caring, loving childhood. Ashley had spent time working at the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinic for Crotched Mountain, an organization dedicated to serving individuals with disabilities and their families. In 2018, she was lucky enough to find a role that would let her explore her interests and blossom in her career: She joined Spaulding Youth Center as a Clinician for the organization’s Cutter-Wiggins residence hall.
