Like many young athletes, Ashley's interest in Physical Therapy and training sparked while being a patient. Having spent her youth and teenage years as a competitive fastpitch softball catcher, she quickly fell in love with everything a high level athlete had to offer. She was recruited as a teenager for D1 colleges and trained with high level trainers, athletes and coaches alike. After a devastating injury ended her ability to play, she began coaching fastpitch teams and travelling the country for a few years.
With her passion for health and fitness, Ashley strived to spread awareness of proper pre and post work-out/sport recovery techniques to athletes of all ages. She continued her athletic drive and competitive edge into her career as a Physical Therapist Assistant. She met Coach Kim while expanding her experience and knowledge at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island where she gained exposure to a wide variety of injuries and medical conditions. She studied to gain her Certification in Kinesio Taping and became a Certified Postural Specialist.
Having struggled with weight management in her personal life, she has also been able to assist with and relate to the health and wellness and weight loss journeys of others. She uses her own experience in improving her health and losing weight to help others with similar goals.
Ashley also uses her passion for creativity and business design as she heads our Digital Marketing Department, adding outstanding marketing ideas, social media concepts and photography design to our team.
Along with laughter and light heartedness, Ashley brings passion, creativity, and determination to the team. Her hobbies include hiking with her dog Mowgli, outdoor activities, music concerts, wineries, watching docu-series, country music, DIY projects, spending quality time with loved ones, and COOKING! Making beautiful memories with her friends and family is one of her most favorite things to do.
