Ashley is a registered dietitian with a master's in Nutrition Science and Policy. She is the creator of the Lower Cholesterol Longer Life Method, offers nutrition counseling in her private practice in Oakland, CA, and teaches nutrition and dietetics courses at University of California, Berkeley.
Food has always been a large part of my life. I have very fond memories of spending hours in the kitchen with my mom, grandma, and great grandma. It wasn't until college that I learned that I could make a career out of that passion while also helping to improve health and longevity.
Going through college, I was aware of my family history of elevated cholesterol levels. I have several family members on cholesterol-lowering medication and have always checked a family history of high cholesterol at the doctor's office. When I received my first blood test as an adult, I fully expected that my cholesterol levels would be high, too. They weren't. My doctor remarked that I must not have inherited the gene for high cholesterol that many other members of my family had.
I received my bachelor's degree in Nutrition Science and Dietetics from Cornell University, completed my dietetic internship at California Polytechnic University, Pomona, and received my master's in Nutrition Science and Policy from Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition.
I currently split my time between teaching nutrition and dietetics courses at the University of California, Berkeley and my private nutrition practice.
In the decade that has followed, I've worked with thousands of people across a wide variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient clinical settings, a technology and personalized nutrition company, my private nutrition practice, and most recently, through the Lower Cholesterol Longer Life Method.
My experience in these roles inspired me to create the Lower Cholesterol Longer Life Method, a course that addresses the root causes of elevated cholesterol levels and provides simple, clear, and actionable steps to lower cholesterol levels quickly and naturally through evidence-based lifestyle changes.
Unfortunately, accurate information on how to lower cholesterol levels is not easy to find. A quick Google search suggest eliminating red meat and fried foods, but many people don't eat those regularly. Physicians tend to focus only on weight loss or medication as a treatment plan, but many people with high cholesterol do not need to lose weight and even more don't want to begin medication. There's another way. It is possible to lower cholesterol levels through simple lifestyle changes that are backed by science.
