    I hope it is. I'd love for Ashley to end her competitive career on a high note, without medals maybe, but with programs she can sell like noone else. I do hope she comes back for a goodbye season. But I'm glad she's not leaving skating altogether. Good luck, Ashley!

    I’m sorry that she won’t be training for Nationals, but think this is a great move. When you read the the list of career highlights on the coaching link, it’s such a big reminder of all she’s done. Boston is the place she had the moment of her career, so a fitting location!

Skaters need to learn to perform. That's what she should call herself: a performance coach. Selling a performance is such a big part of making a good impression on the judges and Ashley excelled at that.

    Can't wait to hear more about this!
    She could hardly have won all those titles if she lacked technical content.

    Yay! Good for her. I think she'll be a great coach, will understand what pupils are going through especially when the going gets rough (she knows), but will also be clear that perseverance is all. She did it herself after all.

    This always baffles me. She was still landing 3-3s consistently at 25. IIRC, as a teenager she used to have triple loop combos.
    I know her artistry and ability to sell her programs is what she is most known for (and truly unique in that matter), but lets not pretend she doesn't know how to jump please?

    Anyway, I REALLY hope to still see her come back to competition. It's not very Ashley style to just give up after a failure. She made it her thing over the years to prove the haters wrong, I hope she does again.
    Also, if she's out for good, then we've lost another artistic skater and we desperately need those in the army of teenage jumping machines.

    me too Nationals comes close enough to me in 10 years that I can attend, and she won't be there. Pretty sad about it.

    Something tells me she'll come back. I think she'll miss it and get a fire under her butt again at least for one season. I don't think she would want to go out on a low note either.
