Ashley’s passion for health and fitness started at a very young age. She grew up doing competitive dance, cheerleading and gymnastics. She’s always been into sports, 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. 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 also 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. As the Director of Nutrition, she also overseas all of the coaches and manages the day to day operations of the business.
In 2018 Ashley moved to Reno, NV to work from the main office. Although fitness will always be a part of her life, she has many hobbies and she's excited about this new adventure. Some of her favorite hobbies include gardening, backpacking, camping, water skiing, continuing her education in nutrition, creating new recipes and spending time with her friends and family.
