Hi! I'm Ashley :) Thanks for being curious about me and my work.

My work has been focused on supporting children since I was a child myself. Through out the years I have taken on a number of roles - childcare provider, nanny, teacher, developmental therapist, spirit auntie. Though it all, the guiding light of my clear purpose has been to support this next generation in being held with deep integrity, love, and in alignment with the healing that is needed at this time on our planet.

I am currently birthing many new offerings as I weave the worlds of early childhood education, somatic healing, and connection to spirit into my life's work. It is with such great joy that I step fully into the role of holding community circles, offering hands on therapeutic support, and mentoring parents and children.
