She holds a Master’s Degree in Integral Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies and a BA in Cultural Anthropology from Wake Forest University. Ashley is a practitioner of vipassana or “insight” meditation, studying at Spirit Rock Meditation Center with Sylvia Boorstein and Jack Kornfield and teaches mindfulness lessons at various private schools in San Francisco. She completed her mindfulness in schools teacher training through Mindful Schools in early 2015. Ashley then went on to complete her Mindful Self-Compassion teacher training with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion.
Ashley’s interest in people, their minds and mindfulness practice started over 15 years ago when she studied the evolution of people and cultures of the world in her undergraduate degree. That study brought Ashley to Nepal where eastern ideas of holistic health and wellness captivated her and ultimately lead her to study mental health from an integrative (integrating eastern and western ideas) perspective in her graduate studies.
