Kai Ashland

Kai joined the Teton Habitat team as an AmeriCorps Service member in 2020.  Upon completing his service term, he joined the team full time as a Construction Lead.  Before moving to be a part of the Teton Habitat for Humanity, Kai hadn’t visited Jackson since he was bickering with his sister in the back seat of his parent’s minivan more than 15 years ago. Since upgrading to the driver’s seat, Kai has spent his post college years working in the outdoor guiding, education and nonprofit sector. From teaching special education at an elementary school, to guiding clients through northern Minnesota’s beautiful winters by dogsled, he enjoys connecting with people through shared experiences. Kai’s favorite thing about Habitat for Humanity is the community of people it creates around it. Outside of work he enjoys reading, biking, playing with his two nieces, cooking, dogs, laughing and being outside!
