Ashley moved to Portland, OR from her hometown of Los Angeles, searching for her calling. After making a New Year's Resolution to "work a job she truly believed in", she found massage therapy.

In 2010, Ashley graduated from the 800–hour program at the East West College of the Healing Arts, where she received training in Swedish, Deep Tissue and Thai massage, as well as many other therapeutic massage modalities. She gathered much inspiration from her intensive training in Thai Massage—both at school and abroad in Thailand—with Allison Longstreth Lurie.

Today Ashley consistently develops her training with professional practice and continuing education courses so as to be able to provide a modern, quality massage experience for her clients.
