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!
