Debbie Ashe has joined Carolina Day as director of admission. Debbie recently relocated to Asheville from New York City, where she worked for Columbia University.

“I am excited about working with a great team in admissions, in the administration and in the classroom,” said Ashe.

Before joining CDS, she served as the director of The School and Child Care Search, a program designed to assist the Provost’s Office with the recruitment and retention of faculty at Columbia University. Debbie was also the director of admission and financial aid at Trevor Day School in Manhattan for 11 years. She was an involved member of the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY), serving as co-chair and communications chair during her tenure as an officer. Debbie earned her B.A. in Comparative Literature and M.A. in English from University of Pittsburgh and a J.D. from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. She is also certified to teach English as a second language.

“I look forward to meeting all of the CDS constituencies and to establishing relationships with organizations and institutions in Asheville,” said Ashe.
