Hi! I’m Ashley. Nice to meet you!
For as long as I can remember I knew what I wanted to do with my life: Anything related to wellness and fitness. The human body is amazing with its ability to heal and regenerate. From the moment I was able to make decisions about my education, I have been absorbing everything I can on these topics. Particularly natural healing practices
There is no one right way to have a healthy lifestyle. We all have different demands on our lives. But, sorting through all the options to create that healthy lifestyle can be a little overwhelming.
My goal is to help you find what works for you and your family. Things that are fun that inspire you to stick to healthier ways, one small step at a time.
What you’ll find here at Cold Texan Wellness is information on fitness, yoga, alternative health, essential oils, quality herbs and supplements, and of course, good nutritious and delicious food.
In a nutshell, I am a wife, mom, former business owner, health nut, and fitness junkie.
I went college in Houston, majoring in Nursing. Most of the way through I really felt that nursing was not my calling. I will forever be grateful for this wealth of information and experience.
Shortly after, in 2006, I completed training for a massage license and have been practicing therapeutic massage therapy. Since then I have also completed training and obtained licenses in Aromatherapy, and Yoga, have become a Reiki Master and Herbal Practitioner. Next stop, nutrition (coming 2018!). In my practice, I have worked closely with several very talented chiropractors and naturopathic doctors from whom I learned so much
In 2014 I married the love of my life, closed my business, and moved to Finland (just for a few years) with our fur baby, Osiris Papyrus and in 2016 we welcomed our baby girl. Thus far it has been an adventure and I am very much looking forward to what life brings us.
After moving abroad I started a blog, Chronicles Of A Cold Texan, just as a way to keep my friends and family updated on our life here in Finland, and something to keep me busy. Things just evolved from there.
I realized I missed going to work everyday and talking about the things that I’m passionate about. Health and Wellness. So, in 2017, Cold Texan Wellness was created.
I look forward to helping you find the things that inspire you to lead a healthier life! I am here for you and would love the opportunity to answer your questions. If you don’t already see what you are looking for, just shoot me an email!
