Do you have a super power? I’ll tell you mine (here) if you tell me yours 😉
The Native Society Inspiring Thought Leadership with a Positive Perspective
Ashley Koff RD: CEO, The Better Nutrition Program
What do I do best?
My super power is to be a better mirror – I see what is already better in people and I show it back to them
What makes me the best version of myself?
Learning from others – I love to observe and ask questions of others and learn what makes them do better in their lives, and then customize it to mine
What are my aspirations?
Personal: to challenge myself to be the best version of me in this lifetime
Business: for those interested and investing in their health, to enable them to get and keep their better health powered by better nutrition. Too many people are guessing what their bodies need to run better. I want to help them (and those that help them) learn to assess themselves better using better nutrition tools.
My Biggest Success?
Helping people achieve their better health powered by better nutrition
My Most Challenging Moment?
Moving to DC at 39 and 350 days not knowing anyone and running my own business, I had to choose my new community. Everyone I meet here would ask “so what do you do”? I recall one person saying “I don’t know what Ashley does but I know that she can get people to support our work” I realized that while I loved this, it wasn’t clear to people what I do and what my goals are, and how they could support me too. I had to work to define my business mission which included what is my purpose – today I am clear I am your better health enabler helping you get and keep your better health powered by better nutrition. I also learned that I didn’t need to be friends with or know every person I met, even if what they are doing is amazing and I want to help or be a part of their work. I had to learn to choose. Choose my friends, choose my pro bono work, choose where I invested my resources.
Make better not perfect choices, more often

My Current Passions?
