I'm Ashley. I also go by Ash.
is my mantra.
The word stuck with me a few years back with the inspiration of my therapist and the healing I’ve done.
I've wanted to redo my website for many years while.
This is a space for purpose and creativity.
I share about myself, my journey to minimalism, my art, my passions and experiences, military life, my struggles with starting a family (illnesses preventing me from even "trying"), passions, resources, and the 18 years of chronic & invisible illnesses I have been through including Vestibular disorders (as well as other lifetime conditions).
To be, share, speak, advocate, flow, and grow.
To be constructive, and purposeful.
To use my natural gifts, experiences, and growth to help others, and myself. To pass along tips and learn from others along my journey.
To learn, shift, and expand. To improve balance and self care while navigating illnesses and the tasks I want to accomplish in life.

SUMMER 2021 UPDATE
I have taken a much needed break for the last year from social media and grown more. I took down my links to a few personal platforms I was active on, but you will still see links to others platforms as I care about their messages. The platform businesses do not align with my values anymore, and as I move to more of a minimal life, I wanted to just refocus and this will be the only space I use.
I am not here for collaborations, promoting companies, or to be an influencer (as they call it these day). No disrespect to anyone, but this is just the direction I am going in. If I am inspired by a cause or person, I share. I am just a person who has been helped along the way and wanted to use my creative gift to pass along information. Simple.
