Ashley continued in 2016 to add another specialty certification as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist, allowing her to develop proper nutrition guidelines for all of her clients. By the Summer of 2019 completed her credentials as a Sports Performance Specialist, to help competitive athletes increase their skill levels, avoid injury and reach peak performance.
Fast forward to 2020, she completed the ACE "Behavior Change Specialist" certification, allowing the development of habit change and behavioral management within her programs and coaching.
A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, Ashley studied at Wake Technical Community College, and graduated with a Associates in Arts Degree, focus of psychology.
