At FletcherPR, we believe in the power of women. Nothing excites us more than seeing women be empowered and inspiring others to do the same. We just wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t shine a bit more spotlight on an incredible woman, Ashley Johnston. You might know her as a member of the Pink Team on Season 9 of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. Partnered with her mom, Sherry, a fellow Knoxville-resident, Ashley fought her way through the entire season. While she may have finished the contest in second place, she is still a winner in our book! Prior to going on the show, Ashley struggled with weight issues for some time and finally decided to make a change when she realized that she could no longer participate in everyday activities without difficulty. Over the course of the 6 month experience, she lost over 49% of her body weight, a remarkable 183 pounds.
As of early October, Ashley was still dating another contestant of the show, Koli from California. She’s currently working with The Biggest Loser to create her own line of workout clothing…and says that being a designer has always been a dream of hers. Ashley also travels a great deal sharing her story with others at various speaking engagements to promote health and being a healthy size. We are so proud of you Ashley…way to follow those dreams!
