You’re a high achieving, make-it-happen kind of woman
You know how to get shit done
You know what it's like to juggle many roles and wear all the hats. You’re no stranger to responsibility, in fact, you rarely shy away from a challenge.
You’re always looking for ways to grow and expand yourself. You’re committed to living a life that feels meaningful, satisfied and fulfilled.
But more often than you’d like to admit, you feel overwhelmed — like you’re running in circles on a hamster wheel that you’re not sure how to hop off of.
You have cycles of intense drive that are at times followed with self-doubt or disappointment — never feeling truly satisfied.
Each time you start a new project you believe the results will be different, but you somehow find yourself in that same familiar spot — burned out, overwhelmed and just wanting to crawl into bed, pull the covers over your head and hide from it all.
Or maybe your head is running wild with ideas but you can never seem to catalyze yourself into action. You feel defeated before you even begin.
You're doing all the things you should do to create a happy life, yet it feels like something vital is still eluding you. Where’s the time to slow down and consider what you want? How can you focus on what you need when there are so many things on your plate?
You can’t possibly stop what you’re doing.
If you did, it might all fall apart
I get it, I’ve been there
I used to run at 90 miles per hour doing all the things that I thought would make me happy and everything that other people expected of me to make them happy.
My calendar was overflowing with activities. I’d run from work, to class, then to my volunteer gig with zero downtime. I remember my grandma telling me...
“Don’t be so busy with life that you miss your life”
Even though deep down I knew otherwise, I had convinced myself I was living a fulfilled life.
The truth is I was running away from my heart — from what I deeply and truly wanted for myself. I did everything I thought I was supposed to do. And yet, I felt empty.
Can you identify with that feeling?
It wasn't until a trusted mentor said to me …
“Notice what it feels like in your body when you tell the truth”
Tuning in to my body for guidance seemed like a radical idea. But it turned out to be the first step in my profound, personal transformation. And, the more I began to practice it, the more ready and willing I could feel the answers within my body.
Everything changed the moment I began trusting the wisdom within me.
My path became clear. I finally saw a way out of the overwhelm, anxiety and pressure that had impacted my life for so long.
I began truly listening to my heart and trusting where it desired to lead me. I courageously began taking big and bold actions. I stopped saying yes when I really wanted to say no.
I gave up trying to please others or feeling responsible for their happiness.
Once I truly and wholeheartedly started letting my heart lead the way I …
left a well paying job that didn’t align with my values
took an epic 15 month trip throughout Southeast Asia and India
refined my photography business to only match my passion
attained my Integral Coaching Certification, and
launched a retreat based business — my ultimate dream
Hear me when I tell you this …
There’s a life that wants to be lived through you. You have a purpose that only you can fulfill.
Let the truth of your heart lead you there
If you’re like I was and longing to live a more meaningful life,
I have something to share with you
I have walked beside and witnessed hundreds of women going through the motions — just like you — holding it all together and hoping that their someday is near.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way.
I know it’s possible to breakthrough because I’ve done it. I stood on the edge of everything I’d ever wanted — with my heart racing and my palms sweating. And, I jumped.
You don't have to wait for someday to start trusting and listening to your own heart. But, you do have to muster the courage to step into uncharted territory.
How would it feel?
To learn how to turn down the noise in your head and tune in to what matters most?
To experience and rely on the freedom of saying No to things that drain your energy?
To be confident in making decisions that resonate with your heart and align with your values?
To stop spinning your wheels being busy and allow more time to do what turns you on and makes you feel most alive?
The truth is …
You could continue doing what you’re doing right now and be just fine. You’ll be rewarded for making things happen and you’ll have a “fine” and “successful” life.
But is that enough for you?
Your life has a purpose
If safely going through the motions, day after day, isn’t going to cut it for you, then you’re in the right place.
I knew my life was meant for something more and I was hungry and committed to discovering it. I also knew that to truly make the changes I wanted, it would mean doing things in a way I had not done them before.
I was ready
I know you are, too
That’s why I created

From my wildheart to yours,
Hello Wild One, I’m Ashlie
I believe you are infinitely powerful and inherently creative. My work is about you knowing that truth, in the most undeniable of ways, so that you can embody it in every area of your life.
My journey to freedom began over a decade ago when I attended a weekend workshop and discovered that I wasn't broken. That life-changing moment propelled me along an endless path of self-love and authentic living.
In the decade since, I've come to know the wholeness of who I am, to trust my intuition for guidance, and to believe that I am worthy of what I most desire.
I believe there is nothing sweeter or more liberating than loving ourselves exactly the way we are.
