Ashley began her career in the arts at the young age of 3, beginning acrobatic studies at the age of 7. She discovered circus through one of her teachers and instantly knew it was something she had to try. Ashley enjoys training on a wide variety of apparatus, however her true passion is exploring contortion skills on the aerial hoop. She is most excited to see students improve and excel over time. She currently continues to juggle training, performing modelling and coaching at the Circus Lab as well as other dance studios and professional companies.
