Haycock, Ashlynne - Education Assistance Coordinator
Ashlynne Haycock

Ashlynne Haycock has been the Education Services Coordinator for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) for over two years. In this position she has worked with hundreds of survivors of military loss to connect them to education benefits and resources to further their goals. She helped facilitate a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between TAPS and the Department of Veterans Affairs that allows TAPS to make it easier for survivors to access their benefits.
Ashlynne is the surviving daughter of SFC Jeffrey Haycock and SrA Nichole Haycock, both who passed from service in the United States military. She received a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from American University in 2013. While at American University, she was one of the first recipients of the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John Fry Scholarship, which helped shape her understanding of the problems surviving children and spouses face during college.
