Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) alumna Kristan Ash is part of Business in Vancouver’s latest cohort of the top 40 entrepreneurs, executives and professionals under age 40.

Ash has been a supporter of KPU since graduating with her bachelor of business administration in 2003. She helped found and currently serves on the board of the university’s alumni association (having formerly served as its chair), is the alumni appointee on the university’s board of governors and is a member of the university senate.

Outside of KPU, Ash has been a pioneer in home-based health services and an innovator in the health care industry. She will be recognized Jan. 28, 2015.

“I am very honoured,” said Ash. “My decisions in business have been driven by my passion for providing care and helping others. To be recognized for that both validates what has been and continues to be a lifelong goal, and is incredibly humbling.”

Today, Ash is director of home health for We Care/CBI Home Health Services, the largest private health care provider in Canada.
