For the first time ever, Ash (Paths & Pages Founder) is behind the wheel of the adventure van FOR EVERY SINGLE SESSION!

Like a Modern-Day Miss Frizzle for Mindfulness... Ash personally leads each session with a kind-hearted spirit, a little bit of magic & a whole lot of fun!




The Entrepreneurial Spirit Behind Paths & Pages

Dubbed a “child-whisperer” at a young age, Ashley began her journey with kids back in 1999... when she officially launched her first “Summer Camp” in her childhood front yard at just 10-years-old.  

Though her business has certainly changed since then, Ashley's gift has remained the same: she intuitively knows how to connect with every child's unique & special way of being. 


Ashley meets kids where they are: conjuring up creative & imaginative ways to remind them how to trust themselves, lead with the heart & ultimately be seen & heard in the world. She's been inspiring kids to embrace their inner weirdo for more than two decades. 

In 2015, Ashley moved to Los Angeles to pursue this mission: creating a comprehensive program to fully support tiny humans through their social, emotional & spiritual development.

She studied mindfulness & meditation practices, eastern & western psychology, forest therapy, reflective writing & art & dance therapy along with a lifetime of explorative outdoor play. 


Her goal was to blend these skills with a nostalgic, wholesome 90's summer experience... developing a screen-free curriculum designed to address the science behind navigating the trials & tribulations of just "being a kid."


She went on to secure “Penny,” the program’s first official van & then all that was left was coming up with a name for this magical new idea…


Ashley woke up from a dream in the middle of the night and wrote “Paths & Pages” on a post-it note.


It was perfect.



To help kids uncover their own special LIFE PATH as they hike actual paths in nature & generate new neural paths in their brains



To help kids cultivate their own unique LIFE STORY as they fill actual pages in their journals & generate a new guidebook for their lives



Paths & Pages, a Nature-Based Mindfulness Program, officially launched in April 2018 & has been growing ever since.


In 2022, to flow with the chaos in the world, Ashley completed a coaching certification & added a Family Support component to all Paths & Pages programs.


Her goal is to help parents change family dynamics & clear negative patterns so they can more consciously support their kids (& themselves)! 

Ashley’s favorite part of guiding the mighty P&P tribe is being able to spend her life helping people she loves. 

When she's not changing lives, Ashley splits time between Los Angeles, CA & Western New York with her two cats (Zeke & Cayden) & Service Dog, Fig!


She is originally from Buffalo, N.Y. (The City of Good Neighbors) & grew-up third generation Sicilian.


Ashley loves hiking & being outside, hanging out with her pets, watching live music & playing slow-pitch softball. She volunteers as a Girl Scout troop leader, a youth mentor & a little league coach.
