The Child Advocacy Center of the Finger Lakes’ Board of Directors has announced that Ashley Davoli is the agency’s new executive director, following Jennifer Brownell’s departure.
Davoli, who most recently was the agency’s associate director, joined the CACFL as a child advocacy specialist in 2015.
She also has served as program manager, overseeing the agency’s programs in Ontario, Seneca and Yates counties.
Davoli, who holds a master’s degree in mental health counseling, has worked with the Finger Lakes Child Abuse Response Team as a forensic interviewer since 2011. Prior to that, she was a child and adolescent therapist serving trauma survivors.
“Ashley has been with the CACFL since 2011 in various capacities, and we know she will do a fabulous job leading this team onward,” said James Ritts, board chair.
The Child Advocacy Center of the Finger Lakes facilitates child abuse investigations through a team of community partners and connects survivors and their families with services such as family advocacy, as well as mental health and medical professionals.
The agency also offers free community and professional education on a range of child abuse prevention topics, such as body safety, consent and online safety.
