Hi! I'm Ashley :) Thanks for being curious about me and my work!
I have always been one of the sensitive ones, often the quiet one in a large group, the one who tracks what's happening for other people, and maybe the one who drifts off into dreams.
So much healing and growth has happened in my human being journey as I have learned to to refine my gifts of sensitivity, care, and lightness!
I am currently in a time of integration, as I weave the worlds of early childhood education, somatic healing, and nature connection into my offerings and my life's work. It is with such great joy that step fully into the role of supporting people of all ages, heal their body-minds, find ease and grace in their lives, and feel freedom from old patterns of being.
I spend my time excitedly creating work projects, cleaning the house (truly), praying in community, rolling around on the floor, hanging out with plants, and loving my family.
