We would like to introduce Ashley Davis, our Volunteer Coordinator for the 2016 Open House New York Weekend. As Volunteer Coordinator, Ashley manages and coordinates Open House New York’s team of over 1,000 volunteers who donate their time and energy during Open House New York Weekend helping out at one of several hundred participating sites and tours.


Before joining Open House New York, Ashley worked as the Executive Assistant at the environmental advocacy organization Waterkeeper Alliance, where she also created and managed a volunteer internship program. Ashley grew up in Columbus, Ohio and received a BA in Communication from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, along with minors in Managing Human Relations and Photography. Throughout her career, Ashley has always had a deep passion for philanthropy and volunteerism – or helping people help the world, as she likes to think of it. She loves New York and enjoys every opportunity to share this amazing city with others.

A few fun facts about Ashley:

  • She designed and led a custom tour of New York City based on the musical “Hamilton.” It involved 12 miles of walking and included a stop in Weehawken, New Jersey!
  • She makes her own (delicious) cold brew coffee.
  • She is one quarter Syrian.
  • She participated in Open House London in 2009.
