Kim Keegan is the Founder, CEO and past-President of the Ashton Hope Keegan Foundation, as well as the Chairwoman of the Board.  Kim spent 15 years as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor along with 25 years as a Personal Trainer.  Nevertheless, her favorite “job” was being Ashton’s mom.  Kim was very active in board positions related to the military while Ed served in the Air Force for 25 years.  Along with the busy schedule of the Ashton Hope Keegan Foundation, Kim is on the Women in Business committee for the Athens Chamber of Commerce, a volunteer and founding member at the Friends of Oconee County animal shelter and previously served on the board.  Kim is also very active with the Rotary Club and is now President of the North Oconee Rotary Club.

Kim is, and always will be, Ashton's Mom. She and Ashton did everything together, from starting an animal Foster program for the county animal shelter, to providing time and resources to educational charities, to starting and running a cake baking business. Ashton's passion for helping those in need was infectious, and Ashton's passion is now Kim's passion.
