Ashley is a native Chicagoan. Hailing from Streeterville, she grew up playing competitive Tennis. It was in High School that her mother introduced Ashley to Pilates and she immediately saw the benefits, both in tennis and in life.
Upon graduating from the University of Colorado, Ashley carved out a successful career in the Digital Media Industry. Between business travel, sales pitches, hours behind a desk and client entertaining, she always turned to Pilates to keep herself grounded and sane.
Two children later, Ashley decided to leave the corporate world behind and follow her dreams and passion commit to Pilates full time. Under the Mentorship of Holly Swanson and Jacquelyn Brennan, Ashley completed her 500 Hour Comprehensive Teacher Program (The Lab Teacher Training). Ashley hopes to empower both men and women to discover and learn the long term benefits of Pilates movement, the same way she did.
When not in the studio, Ashley is busy chasing her two young boys (3.5 and 2) around, loves to cook and is still trying to convince her husband to come to class :)
