Her comprehensive programs incorporate all aspects of life as she encourages her clients to find hope in the midst of adversity. She promotes self care and a healthy lifestyle as a personal trainer and offers meal planning for busy families. She has created an uplifting community of support for moms in all stages of life and has provided a platform to serve as a connection between traditional and blended families.
“The most important thing for me as I continue to establish Our Splendid Life is to provide the resources and support that I needed as I was going through my divorce and custody battle. I felt so alone during the hardest challenge of my life and being there for others has been an incredible blessing to know that I went through all of that for a reason.”
Here is how you can find Ashley:
Before we spoke I emailed her a question on my mind about blended families VS traditional families. I wanted Ashley thoughts as a coach of do we as blended families need to educate traditional families of the world of blended families.
Do you find that when meeting new people you have to explain what your blended family is?
We also talk about how setting rules with our kids and yes my famous line of “close the door” comes up.
