"Working with Ashley was a game-changer for me. In just 3 sessions, I felt like she knew me better than many people in my life. I went into one of the biggest meets of my career feeling more confident than I ever had before. But during my first jump of the meet at opening height, I hit the bar. I was absolutely furious at myself because every jump matters at meets like this. Ashley had been preparing me for this exact moment when I was doubting my abilities and needed to snap out of it. I stepped up to my mark and cleared the height.
I placed 3rd at the Big 12 Conference Championship meet and secured a mark for Regionals. I would not have been able to be as strong and resilient during competition without using the tools that Ashley gave me. I felt like Ashley was right there with me in my journey, not only deeply listening but remembering. And reminding. And propelling me forward with encouragement and love."

"Meeting with Ashley was a game changer for me because she helped me understand my own experience. As athletes I think it's easy to just focus on physical fitness and try to push through things which is what I had always done but now I know how to pinpoint what I’m feeling, work through it, and calm myself down in moments of high stress. I personally loved the emotions wheel to help me dig deeper into my own feelings and stresses. I was also able to practice positive self talk which for me was a huge deal. Ashley would always make time for me, check in, and while helping me through sports she impacted much more of my life and for that I am extremely grateful. I think all athletes should take advantage of these sessions."

"RESET helps you reflect on the person and athlete you are, and who you want to be. It helps you build confidence and emotionally and mentally handle uncomfortable situations and thoughts. It has helped me in my everyday life take a step back, and realize I have all the tools I need to help myself, and I am more than capable. It has helped me get to know myself better, and what I personally need to be successful!”
NCAA DII Soccer Player
"RESET is a way to help athletes respond to setbacks in a healthy way. It also teaches them skills that, if they chose to use them, will help them in all areas of life. It provides athletes with the skills needed to use their failure to propel them forward rather than allowing their failures to consume them.”
Former NCAA DI Swimmer
"RESET is a program that helps expand your mind and change your perspectives on internal issues that a lot of athletes face. It's something that can help improve your game on the field, but also improve your life outside and after sports are over.”
Former HS Varsity Football Player
"The RESET program is something that all sports teams should try. It helped me understand that mental health is a big part of my sport and plays into how I perform. This program helped my mental game and I think it has helped my own successes in games.”
NCAA DI Soccer Player
"The most insightful thing I gathered from RESET was that your sports performance isn't the end all be all. There are much more important things in life, such as your well-being. After completing RESET, I genuinely believe my well-being has improved significantly because of it.”

"The RESET program has really helped me be more mindful of the extent to which my thoughts and emotions affect my daily life, my sport, and the way I carry myself along with providing tools to help reshape negative thoughts that may spiral.”

FROM COACHES & DIRECTORS
“Ashley provided examples from her research, rationale for how we end up where we do, and multiple tested strategies for addressing the concerns. I found Ashley to be easy to work with, flexible and able to adapt to changes, and responsive with information needed as we coordinated for the event. What speaks loudly of Ashley’s impact is that we have invited her back this semester to present again to our staff/coaches and student-athletes!"
Dr. Shauna Sobers
Director for Student-Athlete Development, UT-Austin
“Most presenters/entrepreneurs have some kind of imposter syndrome, and self-admittedly, Ashley was no exception. She found a coach to work through her fears, and now, watching her present, you would never know she at one point struggled too. She practiced facing her fears, and now her mojo exudes confidence – competence breeds confidence. Finally, I heard from multiple student-athletes that out of all the speakers we had come in for student-athlete development programs, she was the best – the most engaging, the most real, and caused the most tangible impact well beyond the hour they spent with her."
Assistant Director for Student-Athlete Development, UT-Austin
"Ashley was a tremendous help to our players and program. The fail better method and approach has really helped us break things down and evaluate on a deeper level to further understand the root of the challenge and tackle it. The open dialog, personal testimonies and free flowing workbook allowed our players a safe place to be engaged, share, and learn from each other. I would recommend this to other programs and coaches looking to improve the mental side of the game to assist their players performance.”
NCAA DI Soccer Coach
"The RESET program has allowed our team to take a step back and learn how each person on our team, including themselves, operates and reacts to certain situations. Throughout the six sessions, we learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable by using new techniques to manage the stress, pressure, and emotions that come along with being student-athletes.”
NCAA DI Volleyball Coach
"The RESET program has really given our student athletes the tools to handle setbacks in a more positive manner. Our athletes learned positive self-talk, mental resets, and other valuable tools that they can apply each and every day. As a coach, it gave me the tools and keywords to use alongside Ashley's training to help our athletes every day.”
NCAA DII Basketball Coach
"The RESET program has helped me continue to build my self-awareness and emotional intelligence. I've seen my athletes more in-tuned to their emotions during practice and have seen them bounce back from failures during meets.”
