Who we are
Ashley Short, CNP., CH
Ashley is a Certified Plant-based Holistic Nutritionist, Clinical Herbalist, Cannabis educator & Co-founder of Earth Kisses Sky Inc. Ashley has studied and practiced various forms of Natural Medicine for over 12 years, even having completed a 2015 internship in Kathmandu Nepal which allowed her to offer Herbal medicine to the local community.
Her love of healing through a Natural and Holistic approach was put to the test by a devastating Lyme disease diagnosis in 2011. After being confined to a bed and wheelchair, which meant losing her mobility and independence, she was encouraged to fight for alternative remedies to this debilitating disease. This difficult personal journey left her determined to improve her own health as well as the health of others, using whole sources, complementary therapies and Herbal Medicine, including Cannabis.
Throughout her evolving goals, Ashley, alongside her business partner Tijen, developed a ‘ready to be mixed with Cannabis’ skincare line that would help decrease chronic pain & inflammation.
