Hello There!
I'm Ashley 


Next Came Motherhood

My passions growing up were animals, gymnastics and learning.  I started reading self-development books as a tween and never looked back.

My bachelor's degree is in sociology.  I love studying human behavior and psychology. 

I have worked at a tiger sanctuary and have also worked as

a zookeeper, both located in Texas. 

I have hand fed lemurs, trained tigers and kissed a kudu!

I reluctantly moved back to Minnesota (Brrrrrr) to be with my then boyfriend (now husband) and switched from the zoo world to the veterinary world by becoming a certified veterinary technician.  

It was at this point that I stumbled into a life coach and spent the next year doing the most effective and transformative work that I have ever come across.

I broke free of the self-judgement and ridiculous expectations
I had put on myself.
I reignited my marriage and started having way more fun despite  having opposite schedules, a cranky toddler
and anxiety. 
I learned to fully embrace and love my body exactly as it was.
For the first time in my life, I developed a default of calm in my body instead of the on-edge restlessness I was used to.  

Coaching healed me a a way that was beyond what talk therapy and holistic health practices had.  

I felt deep in my soul that my insatiable desire to gain knowledge, my past trauma, and my unique life experiences combine to be a force for healing and wellness.

Want to know more about the coaching process?

Let's check out the details!



My husband and I were beyond thrilled to become parents, but I was not prepared for my postpartum experience.

Our son was born with severe colic and my husband worked nights as a K9 police officer. 

My son was unsettled, slept terribly and screamed for hours on end.

By the time my son was 5 months old I was diagnosed with postpartum anxiety, depression and PTSD. 

I could never have imagined feeling that terrible.

A year of traditional therapy and medication got me back to a state of decent functioning again, but I still felt exhausted and overwhelmed much of the time.  

Being a mom had always been my biggest life goal and I adored my son, but I knew deep down that this wasn't thriving. Next came discovering my son's several anaphylactic food allergies and we had several terrifying trips to the emergency room.
