One of my favorite things about Ashley is her desire to continue learning and grow herself. This makes her a great coach and person to have in your corner. She will always be there to celebrate the milestones while still guiding you forward to obtain your goals.
I can’t count the ways Ashley has helped me. The amount of guidance, principles, positivity, structure, and altogether healing she has brought to my life in such a short amount of time…it’s all so priceless.
She helped me become more aware, listen to my body’s cues, fuel appropriately for my sport, and still enjoy all of my favorite foods while cutting the weight I needed and not feeling disordered or absolutely insane in my approach to food. I CANNOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH. If you want to become healthier, happier, and reach specific goals (she does NOT only focus on weight loss) regarding your nutrition, she is the lady you need to talk to. Thank you, Ashley.
Prior to working together, I was struggling with making healthier choices when it came to food.
I am proud that now I actually enjoy planning and preparing meals for the upcoming week. I feel healthier and more positive about my food choices 🙂
If you need motivation with improving your diet and/or starting a fitness routine, Ashley encourages clients in a positive way! Making a mistake here and there does not mean that you have failed. Ashley’s approach is for a long term lifestyle change, not a short term quick fix.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while adulting is no easy feat. This became especially salient in my life when I was fronted with the demands of an emotionally taxing job and the arduous task of finishing my dissertation. Despite intentions of wanting to hit the gym and prepare plant based meals, I found myself not going to the gym and inconsistently thinking about meal planning. Mindless eating and responding to my late night sweet tooth took less mental energy and felt good, at least in the immediate moment. Despite wanting to decrease the mindless eating and late night snacking, I continued to do both.
I “found” Ashley through a podcast. Moved by her enthusiasm and knowledge, I promptly followed her on instagram so that I could continue to add a thing or two to my plant-based cookbook. A few months ago, I reached out to Ashley on a whim and I am so glad I did!
Ashley has a nonjudgmental and genuine approach. She takes the time to truly understand your concerns and to develop attainable goals that make sense for you. It also helps that her energy is contagious!
Since working with Ashley I have noticed improvements in my ability to observe and describe physical sensations associated with being hungry and full; and with emotional eating. I am learning to not restrict myself (which can be hard as someone who struggles with body image) and instead to trust and listen to my body. Another thing, since working with Ashley I have streamlined my weekend grocery and meal prepping process, which has resulted in less eating out, less mindless eating throughout the work week, and overall more time to do other things!
I was struggling with getting started eating healthier foods, meal prepping for healthy living and healthy lifestyle. I’m proud to have gotten energized for meal planning and healthy eating so that I feel better and can do more physical activities. Working with Ashley is a great place to start, great way to get new ideas, motivation and accountability to reach your goals!
Prior to working with Ashley, I was really struggling to manage my weight. No matter what strategy I tried (logging food in an app, counting calories, tracking macro nutrients, reducing carbs, eating boring and bland so called “healthy” food, etc.) the number on the scale kept increasing. Additionally, I just didn’t feel well. I was tired or exhausted most days regardless of how much sleep I had gotten.
Ashley helped me realize that I was doing a lot of mindless eating, including grabbing handfuls of snack food, eating everything on my plate regardless of my hunger, and eating meals with many distractions. We have been working together to break these habits and now I eat much more consciously. I have learned to eat when I truly am hungry and to stop eating when I am satisfied and not overly full. Changing these habits has been hugely beneficial to me. I have lost a lot of the feelings of guilt and shame that I would have after overeating and the number on the scale has finally started to go down.
I highly recommend working with Ashley because she takes a very personal approach in her coaching. Rather than just give you a copy of a generic meal plan, Ashley takes the time to get to know you. She works with you to learn your goals and makes unique recommendations to help you achieve them one step at a time. Ashley has a such a great spirit and she is so motivating. We celebrate each victory during our coaching sessions. She is also super positive and encouraging even if you fall short of one of your goals, and will work with you on a plan to get back on track.
The way the entire family has embraced the changes Ashley has introduced. As parents, it’s always satisfying when we can implement something we’re confident is wholesome and to the benefit of our kids. If we can instill healthy eating habits in them at a young age, that increases the potential for a lifetime love of healthy whole food for them.
Erin and I have both come to have a better appreciation for the impact slowing down when eating can have. It has really increased our enjoyment of our meals while making healthier choices.
Ashley was willing to meet us where we were at in the present and work with us step by step, day by day, week by week to make subtle simple changes that are becoming lifestyle habits which are having profound impact.
The program hasn’t been an “all-in, do it this way or else system”. It’s been “let’s focus on this one or two things this week and pay attention to where that leads us,” process. That really resonated with us. It gives us control of our lives and all the while Ashley has been a partner and guide along the journey.
Ashley is so positive and encouraging. She celebrates every milestone with you. She is awesome at this and that is why she is so successful! I highly recommend her services! She will never give up on you or your goals.
