Ashley Barnes


Ashley is a Health Coach and Seattle-native, now residing in the great state of Tennessee with her very handy husband, Richard, and their super cute, baseball-loving son, Landon.

In 2013 Ashley graduated from Champions Centre Leadership College in Tacoma, WA with an Associate’s in Church Leadership & Ministry. Hospitality is her jam. She loves to make people laugh and most importantly, feel welcomed. Ashley can often be found if you just listen for the very distinct, and super loud laughter coming from across the room, store, or town. She’s also got a knack for keeping things organized, so naturally, she was appointed as the Secretary of The Collective to put her gifting to good use!
