We are excited to welcome Ashley Heisler from Lillian June Wellness as our Self-care speaker and Yoga instructor for the Time Out for the Creative Mompreneur conference!

While growing up, Ashley remembers exercising to fitness videos and learning about nutrition from her mom. Ashley’s love for fitness and helping others stay active grew when she started teaching fitness classes at The University of Texas.

After building a successful career as an engineer and then marketing director, while still continuing to teach fitness classes, Ashley decided to pursue her passion for health and wellness full time! Utilizing 13 years of fitness experience and various certifications, she started Lillian June Wellness as a way to share her knowledge with others.

Lillian June Wellness serves to help women build happy, healthy lives, understand and love their bodies, and connect with other supportive women in their community. Ashley offers customized wellness coaching and personal fitness training for women who are trying to conceive, pregnant, postpartum, and beyond. In 2019, she will begin offering a full nutrition program as well!

“Hi, I’m Samantha, a mid-30s Christian momma of two fantastic little ladies. A Texan for life, born and raised, I strive to live a life of faith and fun. From fashion and blogging to the great outdoors, and of course my backyard chickens — these are the things that bring me joy.

As CEO and Lead Janitor of Jonathan Ivy Photography, I let my inner boss lady shine alongside my husband, Jonathan Ivy. Together we capture moments at luxury weddings and events. We also create visual experiences through commercial and architectural photography.

Oh but wait! I have a side hustle too. Discovering new products and places and scouting subscription boxes is my passion with The Pink Envelope.

As if that wasn’t enough, with all the time leftover (if any!) I’m out and about chasing my two girls and taking on a renovation of our 1960’s home.”
