Ashley's love of fitness and functional movement stemmed from her training as a ballet dancer, studying at The School of American Ballet in New York. She attended SMU and then went on to pursue a career in fashion. After starting a family and living in Seattle, she found the Lagree Method. Within weeks of her first class, she felt stronger, more confidant and was in the best shape of her life. She moved back to Austin and became a certified Lagree Instructor to share her passion with others.

When not in the studio training clients or taking classes, she loves spending time with her husband, Matt, three young boys, Cooper, Cole and Townes and black lab Charlie.
