Ashley’s career as an athlete started at a very young age. She grew up doing competitive dance, cheerleading and gymnastics. She’s always had a passion for fitness, but chose to take a break from competition while earning her bachelors degree from the University of the Pacific. Shortly after she graduated in 2008, she was introduced to CrossFit through her trainer, Gabe Subry, who is still her coach today. Her past in gymnastics and her desire to compete again had her incredibly excited to be a part of this new sport. She did CrossFit recreationally while living in San Francisco and then Australia.

In 2013, when she moved back to California, she completed her CrossFit Level 1 certificate and began coaching and training more consistently. Ashley’s competed four times at the CrossFit Regionals, three times on a team and once as an individual. She’s a professional athlete for the NPGL’s San Francisco Fire and she’s competed at the USAW American Open. Ashley’s excited to be a part of the Black Iron Nutrition coaching staff. She’s passionate about food and nutrition and helping people find healthy and sustainable diets that matches their goals and lifestyle.
