Customer Service Team

Ashley Kumar

Front Desk Supervisor

Ashley was born and raised in Vancouver. While active in a variety of sports during her childhood, her true passion lies in martial arts training. A passion that began as the result of a strong desire to learn self-defense and be a role model for younger women, she has acquired over 10 years of experience training in Don-Jitsu-Ryu and has even competed internationally. Ashley is currently completing her degree in Arts at Thompson Rivers University and hopes to start a career teaching children with disabilities.

When she isn’t at Body & Soul, Ashley is working and training at her martial arts academy or enjoying the beautiful outdoors. With over five years of experience in customer service and with an incredibly positive attitude and warm personality, Ashley is a great fit for our Front Desk Team!

Boris Tang

Front Desk Supervisor

Growing up in Vancouver has shaped Boris’ passion and appreciation for nature and the great outdoors. He is currently a student at Simon Fraser University and hopes to one day empower others with financial literacy. Always looking to improve himself in the way of mind and body, Boris believes that maintaining an exercise program has been one of his biggest accomplishments in helping him achieve a better version of himself.

When Boris isn’t at work or on campus, he is trying new local foods, listening to music or around the city spontaneously finding something new and fun to do!

Julie Boechler

Front Desk Supervisor

Born and raised in Vancouver, Julie was a competitive gymnast in her youth and carried her love of fitness forward by becoming a coach while attending Langara College and then UBC for Human Kinetics. She left the fitness industry to become a Certified Dental Assistant; however, she went back to school two years ago to become a Certified Personal Trainer. She has since enjoyed working as a Fitness Attendant but has recently decided to focus on the administration aspects of fitness instead.

Body & Soul is a great fit for Julie as she can combine her fondness of administration with her passion for health and fitness. When not working, Julie loves spending time with her family and has been very involved with helping BC build the new Children’s Hospital. Julie loves being a mom and considers this to be her most cherished role.
