“We are truly excited to introduce Ashley Honsberger as our new executive director,” said Steve Sickle, OSCIA president. “Ashley is the right person at the right time for the next stage in our organization’s journey. Her collaborative leadership style will be an excellent compliment to the expert staff already at OSCIA.”
