People always ask, "Hey Ash, how did you get into doing this Coaching and NLP work... work?"
In 2008, I survived a near-death bike accident that left me with a broken clavicle and cheek, and three months of severe vertigo. I was in school for ESL to travel and teach, but it lacked meaning and purpose (for me).
This was an extremely challenging time, and I found myself at a significant crossroads in life, feeling very unsure about what to do next or how I was going to get there. The bike accident was a push forward quite literally.
During that time, something became very clear...
I quickly realized that when we change what's going on inside, everything outside changes as a result.
I started as a health coach in 2008, but it was the direct feedback from clients that encouraged me to find what's most effective, kind and supportive for lasting growth and change.
This significant a'ha changed the course of my career and that's when I became a master NLP practitioner.
After a year sabbatical and lots of change, I've found my home in the mountains of Colorado with my husband.
I work with clients here in Boulder, Colorado and globally too, using my NLP and coaching experience to help them to gain absolute clarity, change their mindset and create new belief systems to achieve what they dream of.
I'm often traveling to host retreats for clients, learning how to fly fish or hiking very tall mountains as I'm happiest outside.
I prefer analog to digital, salty to sweet and foreign to known. I'm studying Family Constellation work from Bert Hellinger to further help my clients have the best outcome in life, love and business.
Co-founded HUSH, a modern mindfulness studio in Portland, Oregon that served the most innovative people.
I'm working on dual-citizenship with France.
Organized retreats/experiences in Portugal (4 times), Paris, Zürich, San Francisco, Umbria, Portland (Oregon), and Boulder. Focused on procuring unique spaces and fantastic partnerships.
Built a six-figure global coaching practice the bootstrap before Instagram was a thing.
Creating learning material for billions of people on YouTube to help lead humanity forward.
For a decade to the late David Hartwell Sawyer; strategist to the Dalai Lama, the White House Clinton Administration, etc.
Explorer: Took a 2,200 mile (3540 km) motorcycle trip in search of wild horses, hot springs, quiet, and I lived out of a backpack.
Married a C-suite executive and know intimately the stress and challenges of big work.
Completed 11 five-day meditation retreats and have awarded myself a platinum "Iron Butt" medal.
Took a year sabbatical to question what's normal and to push back on pop culture. I grew up in Miami, Florida and it made me question what matters most quite early (thankfully).
