Ashley (Kennedy) Bacon is a native of Putnam County and has called Milledgeville home since 1998 when she attended Georgia College, pursuing a BBA in Business with a focus in marketing and management.  She has top notch track record with over 12 years of experience in non-profit work, fundraising, volunteer management, sales and marketing.  Offspring of small business owners, she has an extra-large heart for small business owners and strives to address the issues impacting our economic pulse.

Upon joining the team in 2011, she jumped in with both feet, taking on key roles for various organizations including Riverbend State Correctional Facility (Community Advisory Board), Baldwin College & Career Academy (Advisory Council) and she serves as Advisory Chair for the Young Professionals of Milledgeville-Baldwin County.  While she’s excited about the growth potential of the community and aims to be a resourceful asset to businesses at large, she focuses her prime time on membership as well as the execution of the Chamber’s premier fundraisers and programs including the Golf Classic, Blue Sapphire Gala and Reality Check.

Ashley and her husband Nath, along with their children Jenna and Riley, are active partners of Northridge Christian Church where they both volunteer in children’s ministry.
