Ashley has been working with our daughter Brittany for over 7 years! Ashley spends time teaching the fundamentals of softball, the mechanics of becoming a consistent hitter and the mental game. She pushes Brittany to be able to self evaluate to make quick adjustments  in the batters box and on the field. Ashley has also provided Brittany with amazing opportunities to play for the top travel ball teams in the country as well as make college connections during the recruiting process. Brittany will be playing softball at the University of North Florida in the fall of 2019 because of the foundation Ashley built for our daughter.

Ashley’s credentials speak for themselves.  She has transformed my daughter’s softball skills and approach to the game in a tremendous way.  However, where I was more impressed was with Ashley’s impact on my daughter’s life apart from softball.  Ashley holds her accountable for her approach to school and life decisions.  Here her impact has been remarkable.  Ashley is a great life coach!
