Back to Meet the Team

Mary Ashcroft

Board Member

I grew up in Arizona and California.  As a young girl I lived on a farm with chickens, pigs, cats, dogs and horses.  That is when my love for horses first began as a little girl.  I moved to California after middle school and started high school here in Orange County.  Being outdoors at the beach and active has always been a part of my life.  


I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado in Sociology and Psychology.  I went on to earn my MBA in Marketing and Business.  Over the span of my career, I’ve remained active within the Huntington Beach community and within the non-profit sector with local marketing and community relations.  I came to TRC in 2020 to form a community partnership and help feed and reward TRC’s volunteers.  After meeting Donna, other volunteers and the students, I was instantly connected.  I began volunteering the very next day and I continue to enjoy every minute with the students and horses.  


I encourage anyone who wants to be a part of a program working with horses and helping others to join us in helping our students build their skills on a personal and physical level.
