Meet Coach Ashley
What’s up, guys?!
My name is Dr. Ashley Dwyer! I am the Founder/CEO of The Big Day Nutrition! Before starting this amazing company back in 2018, I went to school for and worked as a retail pharmacist, graduating UF College of Pharmacy in 2014.
As a pharmacist, I felt I was never able to fully help my patients as much as I could. Many of the illnesses we dispensed medications for are preventable and can be managed/alleviated with lifestyle modifications and a better diet. This lead me to step out of the literal pharmacy box and venture into health coaching!
With 10 years of experience in pharmacology, healthcare, NPC bodybuilding competition experience, my own health issues, numerous functional medicine practitioners, and many certifications, my main goal is to help clients like yourself learn the ins and outs of balanced nutrition and training WITHOUT the crash diets.
Current credentials: PharmD, ACE Health Coach, HMCC, FNMS, Plant-based nutrition, and soon to be Women’s Health.
I believe in learning how to fuel our bodies correctly, clean ingredients, strength training, and a positive mindset. Life is meant to be lived, and we don’t have to restrict ourselves to do it healthfully!
Meet Coach Casey
Hi! I’m Casey!
I am your beach bum, adventure-seeking, fun, fitness coach!
Speaking of fitness, I’ve been a certified personal trainer for 7 years now! I’m also certified in TRX, Health Coaching, Orthopedic Fitness, and soon to be Mindset Coaching.
I have a huge passion for helping women achieve sustainability and enjoyment in their lifestyles; all while making progress within their own fitness journeys!
I’m a firm believer in keeping a positive mindset and attitude and find that it’s a key component to achieving any goal you have!
This is all why I love working with The Big Day Nutrition and I can’t wait to help you get started on your own incredible journey, too!
Meet Coach Emily
My name is Emily and I love to travel, get outside, and have fun in the gym!
Speaking of the gym, I am a Certified Fitness and Nutrition Coach through OFNC. I am most passionate about strength training, but I will work with you to incorporate the types of training that you love!
I will soon be graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Community Health and a minor is Spanish. Next, I plan to go back to school to get my Master in Science in Occupational Therapy! There is so much health information we are never taught about, and I am excited to help bridge that gap through coaching!
I am a firm believer that true health requires a holistic approach. That means adapting a positive mindset, fueling our bodies properly, strategic training, honoring the fundamentals of health, and looking at the big picture. I am happy to be a part of a team that shares the same beliefs, and discredits the myths created by diet culture.
Lastly, I am passionate about helping others incorporate healthy habits into any lifestyle and find the balance that is sustainable for them. I cannot wait to help you feel confident, strong, and empowered while reaching your goals!
Meet Coach Launa
Hi, I’m Launa Jae!
A Dallas-based beach bum, former collegiate volleyball player, and lover of heavy weights and rap music!
Ever since I was in high school, I have been on some kind of diet. From battling an eating disorder, to liquid meal replacement shakes, to obsessive paleo, to “carbs are the devil”, and EVERYTHING in between, I’ve been there.
Implementing these “fads” in the diet industry left me frustrated with momentary results, a lack of education on what nutrition should actually look like, increased anxiety when it came to social situations or trusting myself with a rigid rule book to follow.
I spent years exhausting myself until I said enough is enough and worked with someone to practice something totally foreign to me “FLEXIBLE Nutrition”… I mean, I can have chips and salsa and still cut body fat? After implementing this way of eating, practicing moderation, learning what portions look like, and eating to support my metabolism, I finally felt free.
I stopped alienating myself from social situations, dinners out, happy hours, and felt confident that no matter what life threw at me, I had the tools to stay on track in and outside of the comfort of my own home. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all prescription when it comes to body change. Which is why I’m here! My job is to teach people about simplicity and efficiency in the world of fitness & nutrition so they can enjoy their life while achieving their desired results!
….And that is EXACTLY the transformation I facilitate with my clients!
I am SO excited to be a part of this team empowering women to take action towards LASTING Composition CHANGE and food freedom! Let’s do this!
