I truly believe that “exercise is the best medicine” for the treatment of any health concern. Everyone deserves to move, function and live well. It is important the client is understood and prescribed a tailored program based on comprehensive knowledge and clinical reasoning. I follow an holistic approach, which puts clients in the centre of care through collaboration of allied health professionals to facilitate greater health outcomes and long-term management.
In 2014, Ashley graduated Auckland University with a Bachelor of Sport & Exercise Science and went on to complete a Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology (Hons) in 2016. She then moved to Queensland in 2018 to practice what she preached. Ashley believes that education is vital to improving your health and is passionate about passing knowledge to clients. She feels this enhances understanding of the condition and the role exercise can play to optimise well-being and life. Ashley follows an evidence-based exercise approach to provide clients with solutions for optimal symptom management, promote moving the body and enabling positive behaviour change. When she’s not at work, Ashley enjoys travelling, exploring Brisbane walks with her pups and playing hockey.
