Ashleigh Baird

Born and raised in central Florida, Ashleigh spent her childhood years crisscrossing the state with her family in search of beaches, islands and fresh water springs to play in. Despite her lifelong love of the water, it wasn’t until 2009 that she discovered the sport of freediving.  After a series of courses, she was blown away by all she learned and how much she improved: “I was hooked.”

Ashleigh most recently competed in the 2014 Freediving World Championships in Sardinia, Italy. “It was a huge honor to be a part of the US National Freediving Team, and right now I am training to grow as an athlete with the hopes of attending Team World’s in 2016.”

Currently living in Miami, she balances her time working at an architecture firm, training for the next season of competitions, and building up her craft as a jewelry maker.
