Where to find Ashley


  • Even though the military is built on the foundation of teamwork and service, this does not require completely removing one’s individuality. That individuality is what makes us stronger as a team. 

Easy steps to developing your self-awareness:

  • Spend time alone. Listen to your thoughts and observe yourself.  Practice being calm with your thoughts.
  • Take time to write. An intentional practice of writing down one’s thoughts can lead to powerful revelations of oneself and confronting uncomfortable thoughts. Don’t distract yourself with unnecessary stimuli.
  • Exposure. Open yourself to ideas from others and put the things that make sense to you in your daily habits. Just listening won’t work; you have to move fiercely forward. 
  • Listen to audiobooks and podcasts. Technology of today allows you to easily intake information when it is convenient for you. Take advantage of this and seek a variety of inputs to expand your mindset and become a stronger individual.
