My name is Ashley, I am 21 years old and currently living in a small town in Northern Ontario, Canada. I have a huge passion for holistic health, nutrition, wellness, fitness, travel and helping others live a healthier lifestyle. It all started with my own health journey and finding the vegan lifestyle that completely changed my life and shifted my mindset. Through my high school years I suffered with disordered eating habits and had a very negative mindset regarding nutrition and what was healthy. I got caught up in only caring about how I looked even though I felt terrible at the time. I was obsessed with working out to the point of overexercising and was scared of most food and its calorie content. One day I had finally had enough of feeling this way, I wanted to feel full of energy again but didn't know what to do. Call it fate but I soon after came across a blog post and video talking about plant based nutrition and the vegan lifestyle. I was instantly amazed by all of the food and abundance of energy it seemed to provide. I immediately gave it a try and within a few days I felt like a new person, I had energy again, I felt amazing and I didn't have to restrict the amount that I was eating. This was such a pivotal moment in my life that I had to begin sharing it with others, I began my social media accounts in hopes of inspiring others to include more plant based meals into their life and show all the benefits it could provide. At the same time I began to love exercise again and this time did it because it made me feel amazing and I wanted to get stronger. I went through two years of college in a Fitness and Health Promotion program and became a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I absolutely love being able to help others with their fitness goals and provide a source of inspiration for them.
After a few years of growing my social media accounts and growing my passion for plant based eating I discovered an online wellness coaching opportunity that completely aligned with everything I was passionate about (for more information on this check out the "work with me" tab on my website). This opportunity gave me the chance to take what I was already doing pretty much everyday through social media and turn it into a career online to help women across the globe become the best versions of themselves and inspire a positive change with my posts. It was no doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made and my passion for it grows stronger each and every day that I help my clients reach their goals and get the chance to meet women who value health and wellness just as much as I do.
I am currently studying at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition to become a certified Holistic Health Coach to be able to help my clients even more so and continue to inspire people to adopt a more holistic approach to health and wellness. We are living in a society that focuses on fixing and covering up health issues rather than using preventive measures. It's time we took charge of our own health and happiness before it gets to late. Given the right environment and nourishment the body can heal itself which is what I pride myself in aiming to do with all of my clients. Its time we get back to basics with our health and start to work from the inside out.
