Ashley is a runner and yogi who has always enjoyed living a healthy lifestyle. From cooking to exercising she enjoys learning about and promoting good health. She started running in middle school as a part of the cross country team. Later in life she developed an interest for Yoga having been a dancer since the age of three. In 2008, she promoted her healthy lifestyle as Miss Connecticut and traveled to Las Vegas to compete for Miss America. She works as a physical therapist and is Board Certified in Orthopedics. As a proud member of the Wampanoag Road Runners, she has run a total of 8 marathons including 3 Boston Marathons.
Ashley is grateful for the ability to run, exercise, and live an active lifestyle. She was reminded that every day is a gift after finishing the Boston Marathon within minutes of the bombings in 2013. Her family was watching at the finish in front of Marathon Sports, but had moved out of harms way after she finished faster than expected. Our lives can change in the matter of an instant, and should never be taken for granted.
