We need to get one thing out in the open straight away. When Ashley Hunter told us her latest endeavor involved offering project management services, we could only chuckle. The reason: Ashley is a super multi-tasker.
We first met the Menlo Park mother of four, who’s children range in age from six to 14, when she founded The Fit Kids Foundation in 2011 and came in contact with her again when we profiled Circle of Friends which she co-founded and served as co-president. In its relatively short existence, Fit Kids has put in place 47 programs involving 4,000 kids in underserved communities. Circle of Friends is now called Ambassadors for Packard Children’s Hospital and has 200 members.
“We hired an Executive Director to run Fit Kids, which made me pause and wonder what I was going to do,” she told us. “My four kids are involved in a million different things, but I seem to do better when I’m busy and I’m particularly good at managing projects.
“So I started Infuse Project Management. I help make things more efficient whether it’s for families, small businesses or non-profits.”
Ashley said she is particularly interested in helping families and small businesses with their charitable giving plans. But other services she offers include research and financial projects, schedule and computer organization, real estate and construction projects and event coordination.
“I know what I can and can’t do,” she said. “And also what needs to happen for progress to occur. People have good intentions but often get sidetracked. I can help keep things on track.”
