YWCA Welcomes New Chief Executive Officer Pro Tem

[May 12, 2021, Lynchburg, Virginia] – YWCA of Central Virginia’s Board of Directors announces Stephanie Andrews and CEO Pro Tem.

YWCA of Central Virginia’s Executive Committee has chosen to engage a pro tem after the departure of Ashley Reynolds Marshall as CEO to ensure the continuity of leadership and continued success for the organization.  The association has hired Stephanie Andrews, a former YWCA Board of Directors Member and President, to steward the organization at this time.  Stephanie brings her extensive experience in business and organizational management to our association, along with her passion for the mission.  Ms. Reynolds Marshall transitioned to be the first Deputy City Manager for Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion with the City of Charlottesville, Virginia. If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please do not hesitate to reach out directly to YWCA’s Board President, Sally Ann Schneider, at president@ywcacva.org.

Stephanie Andrews comes to YWCA of Central VA from Lynchburg City Schools, where she worked in Grant Management, State Reporting, and Record Maintenance. She previously worked with Centra, Horizon Behavioral Health, and Genworth Financial. She is an upstanding member of the community and a champion volunteer for over 20 years. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, Gamma Iota Omega Chapter, a Beacon Buddy with Beacon of Hope, a member of the Lynchburg Junior League, a member of the Coalition for HIV Awareness and Prevention (CHAP), a Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance (LRBA) Leadership Council Board Member among many other engagements in the Lynchburg area community.

Stephanie lives with her husband, Anthony Andrews – a Lynchburg Fire Department Fire Captain, and two children in the City of Lynchburg. She is a graduate of Amherst High School, University of Lynchburg, has a Masters from Averett University, and is currently pursuing her doctorate from University of Lynchburg. YWCA is excited to continue our forward momentum at the association with Stephanie’s help to ensure we continue to get up and do the work to eliminate racism and empower women.
