Ashley Soifer

Chief Innovation Officer

Ashley Soifer is the Chief Innovation Officer of the National Microschooling Center, where she leads direct microschool supports, the development of new programs, and parent and leader outreach. Ashley guides the Center’s movement-building work with parents, educators and community members, including helping organizations and individuals launch microschools that live up to the potential of their diversified visions.

Ashley has served as the Chief of Staff at Nevada Action for School Options, a nonprofit organization that supports the growth of diverse choices of rich, high-quality and personalized educational opportunities for all students across Nevada, since 2020. In this role, Ashley played a critical role in building and managing the Southern Nevada Urban Micro Academy, the first of its kind public-private partnership with the City of
North Las Vegas. The microschool, created to combat pandemic learning loss, has received substantial national and local attention for its powerful track record of academic growth.

Born and raised in Southern Nevada, Ashley is committed to improving education in Nevada, and firmly believes that the best way to do that is to ensure that educational opportunities not only exist, but thrive.

She and her husband, Don, are raising three microschooling children in Las Vegas.
