Creative, energetic, integrity-driven, and a long-time supporter of Trevor’s mission and vision, Ashby Dodge brings a diverse set of skills to The Trevor Project, with a strong knowledge of clinical social work, human behavior, LGBTQ initiatives and event and program administration. Before joining Trevor, Ashby worked as the Director of Programs at ENACT, Inc., helping NYC public school students learn social and emotional skills through creative drama and drama therapy techniques. Her past clinical work has focused on the treatment of sexual assault and domestic violence survivors, substance abuse, adolescents, couples and LGBTQ youth. She is most comfortable working in an authentic environment that develops innovative and life-saving support to oppressed individuals aligned with organizational culture, values and objectives. Raised in Hawaii and Virginia, Ashby obtained her BFA in Drama Therapy from Longwood University before moving to New York City to work as an actor and pursue her therapeutic career, obtaining her MSW in 2007 from Fordham University. When Ashby isn’t working at The Trevor Project, she can be found enjoying the work at her private practice in Chelsea, running on the West Side Highway, sharing food with friends and family, and spending time at home with partner Chris and 21 year old cat Tashi.
