Hello there and welcome to stay sweet wellness! I am so grateful you took a minute to stop by.
I'm Ashley, a young mama to be and health professional bringing balance, energy and inspiration into the lives of my clients. I currently live in Bel Air, Maryland with my husband, Ben and my cattle dog, Honey. I feel so blessed to call this wonderful town my home.
My health and wellness journey began many years ago playing sports as a child and finding interest in the culinary arts. Being active and eating healthy came naturally to me because both of my parents were conscious of physical activity and nurturing their bodies with wholesome food. After earning my B.S in psychology and music from Lynchburg College, I attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach. Through my experience, I studied over 100 dietary theories, learned the skills to create a healthy relationship with food, and the importance of bioindividuality. I became so inspired to continue my education in health and wellness, that I attended the American Council on Exercise to earn my certification as a Personal Trainer and Razz Yoga to receive my 200-hr certification as a Yoga Instructor under the guidance of Yogini Kali Om. Expanding my knowledge within the health and wellness realm has provided me with so many opportunities to change peoples lives. From healthy recipe workshops with teens, to private yoga classes with families, there is no doubt in my mind that this is what I was put on this earth to do.
I created stay sweet wellness because I want to share with you, my love for life, wholesome food, exercise, and balance. My goal for each client is to reach a state of strength and vitality both mentally and physically. Within the yoga philosophy it is said, that each answer you seek is already within you. I am here to bring realization into each client's life. What you long for already exists and I will help you reach each of your goals.
I hope you enjoy my health tips, recipes and passion for living a kick ass life!
