YOU DESERVE A PERSONALIZED AND MULTIDIMENSIONAL APPROACH TO COACHING AND I AM HERE TO HELP YOU TAP INTO YOUR BRILLIANCE. YOU ARE UNIQUE & YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS TO MATCH THAT.

Hey Girl

I’m Ashley but my friends call me Ash! I’m a Therapist turned Holistic Business Coach, podcast host, wife, mom of three, and digital nomad - but not in that order. And, I am so freakin' glad you’re here!

Born and raised in Colorado with a wild heart (like, I got in A LOT of trouble growing up), a deep need for adventure (as in sell my things & move into an RV), and a dream to change the world (and you better believe I’m fucking doing it).

I have always been one of those girls who just believed I was meant for more. I was the first person in my family to attend college, let alone get a Masters degree, and I never once intended on becoming your traditional therapist. In fact, I opened my private practice before I even graduated - talk about blind confidence and a ‘no clue what I am doing’ moment - must be the enneagram 3 in me. ;)

Standing out & doing things differently has always been my MOTTO. 

Running a private practice was all fine and dandy until I got pregnant with my first and felt the true difficulty of expenses & no PTO to be present at such an important time. I quickly made the shift to community mental health thinking a ‘system’ would give me freedom but ohhh was I wrong. In a short three months of full days away from my baby, I knew I had to get creative and do what everyone told me I couldn’t & shouldn’t…

I started a network marketing business, replaced my full time income, and quit my “normal” job. My aversion to spending my days working my booty off instead of being with my son gave me all the fuel I needed and a new form of entrepreneurship was awakened within me. I took this freedom to the next level by selling all of our belongings, moving into an RV, and traveling full-time. I rose the ranks of two different companies over the span of 4 years speaking on stages in front of thousands, taking insane (and free) trips around the world, and growing into the leader I knew I was meant to be.

And then...this simply wasn’t enough (insert permission to burn it all down & build whatever the hell you want back up.) Now I was the mama of (almost) three little people and I craved returning to my roots as a Therapist but knew I had to do it differently. 

My brain just works differently. I see what others can’t. I take risks others won’t. 

And, I know that growing a business is so much more than tactical strategies and idealized models for success.

It’s about understanding yourself and others on a deeper level so you can speak in a way that sets you apart from the crowd. It’s about using your own biological blueprint as a guide for how to maximize your efforts, intentionally manage your energy, and design strategies aligned with you. It’s about setting yourself free of the beliefs that you have to do things like everyone else and letting your innovative & creative flag fly. 

In my first two years of business as an online Holistic Business Coach, I was able to not only soar past the vanity metrics that were normal, but do so while living my fullest life as a mom with three young children. 

I disrupted the industry & the beliefs that you can’t have it all. And, I did so while showing my hardships, my hiccups, and my difficulties with full transparency. 

Because my greatest value in life is to never induce shame -- and shame is only found in the moments we hide our hurt & imperfections and allow beliefs like “I am alone and broken” to take over -- I made it my mission to be as raw & real as possible in my journey & I still do.

I want you to see the possibilities but I also want you to see the struggles. I need you to know what you’re capable of & how aligned your life can be, but I also need you to know it won’t always be easy, fun, and exciting. Some days it will be hard, lonely, and suffocating, but you don’t have to do it alone.

SET YOURSELF FREE OF THE BELIEF THAT YOU HAVE TO DO THINGS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE & YOU’LL FIND MASSIVE SUCCESS LIKE NEVER BEFORE. 

At this point in my life I had uncovered some insanely amazing tools for personalized business growth like cycle syncing, energetic alignment, and other creative approaches to business that no one ever thinks of.

Bri

Obsessed with:

{Decaf} oat milk lattes - add in a rainy day and my dreams have come true. And yes, keep it decaf and your hormones will thank you.

Fall is my favorite

If there is a place out there where the season of fall lasts longer, please send me the location and I’ll move immediately.

"Fun" Book Time

I read 2-3 ‘fun’ books a month. If it’s after kid bedtime, you will almost always find me curled up in bed binging my current kindle read.

I love to travel

...so much so that once upon a time I sold all of my belongings and lived full time in an RV with my hubby and a 1 year old Baylor.

Enneagram 3W4

This means I am an achiever who wants to stand out & be uniquely successful. I am also a manifesting generator so I like changing things up...often.

A Weird Thing...

I have a weird thing for salads and would happily eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fact, I did for all of my pregnancies - with a side of thin mints of course. 

Kind Words

She is also a powerhouse. She has this way to unveil what I am hiding from in thoughtful ways so I also think more about the topic instead of shutting it down. I am totally enamored by Ash and the way she jumps into all that I find scary and does it with grace and honest transparency.

Tracy

Business systems & operations consultant)

Just to be in her presence and energy shifts things inside you. I love how she can call you out, inspire you, motivate you, coach you all while showing so much love, compassion and understanding. I love that she encourages me to look inwards and that she truly does business differently. It shows us anything is possible when we fully trust.

Rosa

Podcast Management Agency Owner

She’s vulnerable. She’s compassionate. She’s a work in progress on her own and she shares this journey and takes you along for the ride imparting every lesson she learns in near real time. She’s real. She’s raw. She’s brutally honest with herself and she expects the same from you. In working with her I’ve had my own unbecoming (from the lies and the masks and the beliefs that didn’t serve me) and I’m becoming new versions of myself with each year we’ve worked together.
