When not following her daughter's activities, she is likely to be discussing Purdue sports, walking her Australian Shepherd Dixie, or brushing her cat Jubil (who refuses to groom himself).

Ashley Sellers

Ashley has worked in animal care for many years prior to pursuing her fitness career. She came back to us because she missed veterinary medicine so much and we are very happy to have her back! She will often be that smiling face welcoming you in the door, but really she is a "jack of all trades" and pops up in multiple areas of the hospital. Her return has really rounded out our animal care team!


Ashley spends her free time with her husband and son, their pup Scooter and cats. Of course, Ashley still spends much of her free time at the gym. Don't let her tiny stature fool you. She's the strongest one in the building!
