Ahley & Mac Coffield

Mac is an attorney at International Paper. Ashley is the CEO of Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region. We have two boys, Henry and Paul, and we live in the Evergreen Historic District.

What brought you to Memphis? What keeps you in Memphis?

We moved to Memphis in 2001 from Washington, DC, where we had lived for nearly a decade. Ashley graduated from Rhodes College, fell in love with Memphis, and wanted to move back. It's now our adopted hometown.

Who do you think is doing great work in the city?

Snowden School Foundation supports a school that has done so much for our boys. We also appreciate the good work of Reach Memphis, Overton Park Conservancy, HopeWorks, Memphis Area Legal Services, Indie Memphis, and of course, Planned Parenthood.

Ideal day in the Memphis area?

Our ideal day in Memphis is time with each other in Overton Park or downtown enjoying views of the river.
