Exercise Physiology Enthusiast
Ashleigh has been in love with the exercise science world since she took her first sports science class in year 9 and has been tailoring her education to this field ever since!
She started her university studies at Miami University in Ohio where she majored in Kinesiology and minored in Nutrition before transferring to UNSW to start her degree in Exercise Physiology.
Ashleigh has undertaken classes in anatomy, physiology, nutrition, developmental psychology, pathology, and exercise physiology. She has a strong passion in working with children and making exercise safe and enjoyable for them, having worked as a swim instructor and an after-school care educator for many years.
Growing up, Ashleigh LOVED athletics. She competed in athletics from the age of 5 and competed at a state and national level. Ashleigh specialised in the rather quirky event of racewalking, where she won national medals in both Australia and in the USA.
The track was always a happy place for Ashleigh, and as a result, she is now an accredited coach and official. She has also competed in netball, triathlons, cross country, and swimming.
Some of Ashleigh’s achievements include:
Certificate III in Fitness
Accredited Athletics Coach
Accredited Athletics Official: Track, Long Jump, Shot Put, High Jump, Race Walking, Out of Stadia Events
Running a half marathon in 1hr 39 minutes!
Breaking a 17-year-old US national record in the 1-mile racewalk in 2015
