Ashley is an actor and playwright who lives for storytelling. As a child, she found peace in exploring what could have been if she were born in a different place and time under altered circumstances. Delving into the life of someone else through the universal truth of human emotions is what keeps Ashley feeling sane and inspired.

After graduating with a B.A. in Psychology and Theater from the life-changing University of Notre Dame, she decided to expand her skill set by enrolling in the M.F.A. program at The New School for Drama.  Upon graduation, she quickly learned the financial realities of the profession and decided that she would support her number one love, acting, by entering into a world that would provide a positive and life-changing experience:  The Fitness Industry. As an N.A.S.M. Certified Personal Trainer, TRX Level 1, and a MAD DOGG Certified Spinning Instructor, she loves helping others reach their personal health and fitness goals, as someone once did for her. Her business, Lift Your Way to Fit, lives on the motto: “Discover the best version of yourself and live it,” which is what Ashley strives to do for herself and others.

Regardless of her obsession with fitness, Ashley is the best version of herself when she is on the stage or in front of the camera. She loves the unpredictable nature of her professions and thrives on how no day is the same in this insane whirlwind that is New York City.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
