Ashley was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago. She attended Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, IN, and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education with specialization in Early Childhood Education. After graduation, Ashley moved to Chicago and began teaching kindergarten. Her favorite part about the age group? The fact that they’re so active! Keeping active has always been a passion for Ashley, so she wasn’t at all surprised to find herself falling in love with the Chicago fitness community. It wasn’t long before she found herself studying to become a certified personal trainer so she could join it! Ashley earned her NASM CPT certification in June, and she has loved every second of applying her passions for physical activity and teaching in a new way. Ashley’s goal for every client is to make each workout session so valuable and enjoyable that they become too hard to miss.
