If there’s one word to describe Ashleigh McAuliffe, it’s driven. A model and entrepreneur from small-town Australia, the self-described country bumpkin-turned-business owner has energy to spare, and doesn’t have any time to waste. “I was born and raised in cattle country,” says Ashleigh. “I was homeschooled, so I spent a lot of time helping my parents on the property. In my senior year I went to boarding school, and became interested in having fun and going to parties—that’s where I gained my rebellious streak!” A health and fitness nut, Ashleigh works hard at the gym to tighten, tone and otherwise sculpt her perfect body, and works as a personal trainer to help others achieve their goals. She’s placed in glamour and fitness modeling competitions, too. “For about as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be part of Playboy,” says Ashleigh.
