Ashley Hipsher is the Marketing Coordinator for the Technology Entrepreneur Center. She joined TEC in June 2015, and her responsibilities include providing marketing support to TEC faculty and staff through program marketing, evaluation, event planning and coordination. Ashley plays a vital role in social media design, development and implementation of social media campaigns used to increase awareness of the Technology Entrepreneur Center and their programs and events both on and off campus. Ashley enjoys working with passionate students who are determined to turn their idea into something more—and the resources TEC can provide to turn their dream into a reality.

In her spare time, Ashley enjoys do-it-yourself projects, following her favorite sports teams, binge watching Netflix shows, shopping and spending time with her friends and family, especially her husband, Nick and their sons, Weston, Nash and Beau.
