Welcome to my world of transformation! I'm Ashley, a passionate advocate for women and a firm believer in the power of connection and intention to create positive change in our lives and communities. As a mom of seven amazing kids, a survivor of rare diseases, and a kidney donor, I've experienced the trials and tribulations of parenting in various roles - stay-at-home mom, single mom, working mom, and mama-prenuer. Through it all, I've learned that the key to thriving is finding a deep connection with yourself and learning how to respond with intention instead of reacting to life's challenges.
My personal mission is to empower women to thrive through meaningful connections and purposeful action, creating the support women so desperately need and deserve.
With my 500RYT credentials and my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in hand, I'm embarking on an exciting new chapter. Currently, I'm actively involved in supporting women through my work as a birth and postpartum doula and childbirth educator, as well as a yoga, meditation, and breathwork teacher in the East Bay of Northern California. My experience in these roles has given me a unique perspective on the challenges woman face and allows me to offer trauma-informed support. I've been in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 15 years, building a network of support for moms and women leaders. Previously, I led my locals Mothers of Preschoolers group, hosted multiple women's retreats and supported local women's high school athletics programs. Everything I do is designed to create more support for women.
I live in the East Bay with my partner, our 7 children, and one very need French-ton. I spend my days remembering that balance is a verb- an action word, and the work is to allow myself to move in and out of balance and challenge with ease. I'm still learning.
I'm excited to continue public speaking engagements, leading classes, workshops and retreats on trauma-informed yoga and doula care, balancing the nervous system and navigating the transitions of life. So, if you're looking for transformation, connection, and a fierce advocate, you've come to the right place. Together, let's rise from the ashes like the legendary Phoenix and create a world where every individual can thrive with the support they need.
