Ashley’s passion for wellness begun at a young age having both parents with type 2 diabetes and watching them try to manage their disease by making lifestyle changes.

Ashley earned her Bachelors of Science degree from Florida State University in Dietetics with a minor in religion and is currently pursuing her masters in Dietetics with a concentration in Health Informatics. Ashley is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and believes the way we eat is highly influenced by our families, culture, access to foods and our beliefs or religion.

Jasmine works as a Registered Dietitian at a Diabetes Outpatient Facility and believes in a realistic approach to improving nutritional habits for better quality of life. Her interest in nutrition blossomed from health problems dominating her family's life but could have been corrected through preventive diet measures. She earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Nutrition Dietetics from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition from Rosalind Franklin University. She has worked as a Nutrition Educator in the Florida Department of Health for 3 years while counseling patients concerning health issues impacting the community. Throughout her experience and service with the community and with the Florida Health Department, she saw there was a huge need of nutrition education in minorities through culture.
