Milwaukee High School of the Arts
Ashley Robinson, native of Milwaukee, is a proud alumna of Milwaukee High School of the Arts, where she majored in creative writing. She also earned her Bachelor's degree from Alverno College and will be pursuing her Master's Degree in Nursing in the spring of 2019. Ashley focuses much of her nursing practice on nutrition and wellness. She opened her business, "Ashley’s Preps" that provides healthy and pre-portioned meal options for individuals over one year ago.
She began meal prepping initially because she quickly discovered she was sacrificing health for convenience. "I was eating unhealthy, spending a lot of money eating out, and was not really satisfied with what I was eating." Once she realized that the food options are either full of carbs, grease, or overly processed, she had a vision to create something that is accessible, nutritious, and locally prepared. "Our food choices have a huge effect on our health and wellness," says Robinson. She creates individual meals with hormone and GMO free foods. Each meal is significantly low in calories, and are tasty!
