Ashley is an Ironman Certified Coach and has a strong history in athletics and coaching. For years, her primary sport was Rowing. After a successful 4 years rowing for Division 1 Syracuse University, she continued to pursue rowing for an elite team after college in Saratoga Springs, NY. Ashley has previously coached the rowing teams for Saratoga Springs High School, the US Junior National Development Team, Syracuse University, and she continues to coach with the Air Force Wounded Warrior Team.
As a rower, her favorite cross train activities were always running and cycling, which led to a seamless transition to triathlon! She jumped into triathlons with full force when she signed up for Ironman Maryland as her first triathlon race, and she has been in love with the sport since. When it comes to coaching, Ashley loves communicating with her athletes and figuring out what unique differences each athlete requires to succeed. Watching her athletes grow and overcome life obstacles through sport is Ashley’s favorite part of coaching!
