Clear Path Announces New Family Support Manager

 Clear Path for Veterans is excited to announce the newest addition to the Clear Path team, Ashley Sloan. Serving as the Family Support Manager at Clear Path Ashley will be working to provide programming and events specifically geared toward Veteran and military families.

Ashley Sloan is a Central Pennsylvania native and a graduate of Pennsylvania State University where she received a degree in Rehabilitation and Human Services with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. Sloan comes from a large military family being the daughter of a Marine Veteran and the stepdaughter of an Army Veteran. With other family members serving in various branches and her personal working experience working for the Navy’s Fleet and Family Support Center, she has ties within every branch of the military.

Shortly after moving to Central New York Sloan met a local Veteran who spoke so highly of Clear Path, she knew it was a place she had to visit. “I love that Clear Path brings together Veterans, military members, and the community for events that focus on wellness. Wellness is so important especially in stressful times” says Sloan. It is with this thought in mind that Sloan is most looking forward to planning events that focus on bringing Veteran and military families together within her new role as Clear Path’s Family Support Manager.

When asked what message she would share with the community Sloan stated, “I believe it is so important to not only support the Veteran and the military member but to also support the families and children who stand behind their service member. The Silent Ranks are crucial to the success of the service member’s mission so having resources available for families is an amazing step in the right direction for those that support the military and Veteran community.”

Sloan is currently pursuing her master’s degree from Southern New Hampshire University in Communications. She currently resides in Madison County with her partner who is in the Air National Guard, her daughter, three cats, and five dogs.
