She has also obtained a Nutrition and Health Coach certification from the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Like many, she did not always live the “healthy lifestyle.” Seven years ago, her parents’ unhealthy lifestyle choices led them to each having a heart attack. Both underwent extensive surgeries to try and repair the damage. Her mother underwent open-heart surgery, and father had two stents placed in his coronary arteries. Following the surgeries, both developed type 2 diabetes. She started to research their nutritional needs to help them defy their odds. Despite the stress from assisting her parents with their needs, and their unwillingness to change their ways, Ashley found nutrition and fitness to be enjoyable. It was then she decided to make a lifestyle change for herself by eating healthier, exercising at least 4 to 5 days every week and taking on a Degree in Nutrition and a Personal Training Certification with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). She also interned and worked under celebrity nutritionists J.J. Virgin and Cynthia Pasquella, as well as Christine Bullock, fitness model, nutrition counselor and celebrity trainer.

I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, and started traveling as international model at the age of 16 and did that for the last 10 years. I lived in places such as Hong Kong, Germany, Paris, London, Milan, and the United Arab Emirates. I have since decided to slow down with the traveling and base myself in Cape Town where I now work as a property broker and model part time. During the 10 years of modeling I completed school online, so that I could travel for work, and then went on to study nutrition and exercise science which are my biggest passions. I can’t start my day without a workout and I firmly believe that health starts from the inside out, so what we fuel our bodies with is so important. Health is wealth and that is why I love the Vibrant Health range, as the products add so many benefits to how I feel on a daily basis.
