I help people build stronger, more intentional relationships by providing the resources, education and information they need.

 If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed and frazzled, not sure where to start, but knowing your relationships aren't what you want them to be, start here. 

I didn’t realize that life is more like a story you get to write. You determine the setting, the characters and whether it’s a drama or a comedy. Investing in myself through coaching with Ashley was one of the best decisions I could make, because I met an “editor” who helped me define my story. I feel empowered to create a life that I love!

A Little About Me...

I help growing families move from chaos and reaction to living a life of intention, not waiting for "one day", and creating a family where everyone thrives. 

Knowing work has a ripple effect throughout a whole household, I also

 work with entrepreneurs to help them understand themselves and the ones they work with by knowing their strengths, what motivates them, and more. 

Using DISC personality "snapshots", we can open the door to self-awareness and learn how to move from basic communication to true connection.

And on the home front, I do this all virtually while RVing the States full time with my three daughters and husband. We've been on the road since October 2016 and have been to all of the lower 48 states! 

As a mom who struggles with supporting my children on their own individual journeys while maintaining a thriving family life, I found Ashley’s coaching to be incredibly valuable. She coached me through my strengths and weaknesses and guided me to better understand what may trigger stress for me and ways I can reduce that so I can be the very best mom and wife for my family. I highly recommend her whether you feel you are struggling or not and I’ll be recommending her to my families at Acton Academy.

My husband and I took the personality snapshots from Ashley when we kept having issues communicating with each other. They helped us see why we sometimes misunderstood each other and how we react negatively or positively to certain situations that come up in everyday family settings. The personality snapshots were great in that we received clarification on the profiles from Ashley highlighting our key strengths and weaknesses in our specific personality style. I would love to get one for my oldest daughter now that I have seen how much it’s helped myself and my husband.
