Ashley was born and raised in Southampton New York in the United States. She grew up riding horses and competing on her family’s horse farm and spending lots of time at the beach, eventually becoming an ocean lifeguard for the Town of Southampton. At the age of 13 she first came to Costa Rica with her family for an epic 3 month tour exploring Costa Rica’s natural beauty in an old Toyota Land Cruiser and a pop up camper. From then on she was hooked to the warmth of the people, the culture and the natural beauty of the country. Ashley has now lived here full-time for 11 years. She started working with Darin in his real estate business, Nosara Real Estate, 7 years ago. When Darin, Jill and Ben began the dream of Costa Rica Yoga Spa she became “Todo Ash”, managing construction and helping with the start up of the business. Ashley has two wonderful children with her husband Jose. Her boys, Dylan and Taylor are the light of her life.
