ACE Profiles |  Ashley Thompson

Originally from Carrollton, Georgia, I went to Ogeechee Tech cosmetology program in Statesboro, Georgia. While attending college, I battled the deadly disease of Anorexia Nervosa for three years. During that time I became very ill and lost a large amount of weight. I became obsessive of exercise, and was always wanting to find my "perfect body.'' After graduating college, I moved back home with my family to focus on getting healthy. Three years of dedication, hard work and positive thinking, and I was back at my healthy goal weight. Now I am a hairstylist, but I have also pursued my heartfelt passion for fitness. I am ACE Certified and living my dream in helping people reach their fitness goal. I strive to share how important it is to love the body you're in, but to take care of it.
