Ashley Mercardo Board Member
BIO

I am a student at Aurora Central High School entering my senior year. I am currently involved in the National Honor Society, GSA, and the Central Creative Carers Club, where we are actively engaged in our community and try to encourage and educate the school and home communities. I am extremely passionate about animals and wish to further a career as a veterinarian after high school. I’m also very intrigued by the human brain, so I can envision myself being a psychologist. I want the future to be bright and opportunistic for oncoming generations so they can feel peace with the environment and themselves.
