Aubrey Mable, a Colorado native, is a 2014 Bryant University graduate and had one of the most impressive softball careers in Bryant history. She went on to be a softball coach for both Providence College and Bryant University, and now works as a Health and Wellness Coach for Isagenix.

Before entering Bryant, Mable was a three-sport letter winner in golf, basketball, and softball at Eaglecrest High School in Colorado. According to her biography on the Bryant University website, she was nominated as the 2010 Female Honor Athlete of the Year, 2010 All-Colorado Selection for softball, and had the highest batting average and stolen base percentage on her 2010 team, along with many more recognitions.

Mable was recruited by Bryant at a softball tournament and quickly fell in love with the school when she visited the campus. As a freshman, she had one of the most impressive individual seasons in the programs history, playing in 40 of the 44 games. Named to the All-Northeast Conference Second Team and NFCA All-Northeast Region Second Team, Mable led the team with a .419 average, the fourth-best single-season mark in program history.

Mable had an equally memorable season in 2012, during her sophomore year. Her biography states that she was one of three Bulldog players to see time in all 45 games as a starter, and set a single-game program record with eight RBI in a game against Yale. Continuing her remarkable career at Bryant as a junior, Mable, again, started in all 43 games for the Bulldogs at shortstop. She was also named Northeast Conference Player of the Week on April 8, 2013, and earned a First Team All-Northeast Conference selection for the second consecutive season.

As a senior, Mable ended her time at Bryant as the program leader in games played (182), RBI (125), runs scored (141), doubles (56), total bases (363), slugging percentage (.671) and homeruns (28). She started in all but four games during her Bulldog career, earned Northeast Conference Player of the Week recognition twice, was named to the All-NEC First Team (shortstop) for the third-straight time, and earned a spot on the NEC All-Tournament Team. She was also selected as a Capital One Academic All-District I honoree, a Senior CLASS Award candidate, the NCAA Woman of the Year (Bryant University), and was named to the NEC Academic Honor Roll.

Mable graduated from Bryant in 2014 as a communications major with a concentration in psychology and a marketing minor. In addition to being a fierce athlete on the softball team, Mable was an honors student, a Bulldog Leader, and a Student Ambassador. She also participated in the Sophomore International Experience to Germany and Spain and enjoyed a semester abroad in New Zealand.

The summer after graduating, Mable went back to her home state of Colorado to work as a special events assistant for the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club. She was tasked with promoting the Rockies in a positive manner and distributing sponsorship materials around the stadium while also assisting with the coordination of pre-game groups and activities.

Mable went on to get her master’s degree from Providence College for counselor education/school counseling and guidance services in fall of 2014. While there, she also served as the assistant softball coach, teaching sportsmanship and integrity with a strong passion. In 2015, Mable was able to return to Bryant University to be an assistant softball coach after the position opened up. In an interview with Mable, she stated that she, “wanted to give back to the school that gave her so much.” She loved being at Bryant and was able to be an assistant coach for two seasons.

Being in graduate school and an assistant coach, had a strong effect on Mable as she felt as though she was losing her identity as an athlete. Not too soon after, she saw her friend posting transformation pictures on Facebook and she realized that she wanted a transformation for herself, therefore, she reached out. After about a month, Mable felt incredible and she wanted to help other people go through the same transformation she did. That’s when she started working for Isagenix. She originally started by doing it on the side while she was a graduate student, but felt such a passion for helping people reach their health and wellness goals, that she realized coaching wasn’t for her and started working for Isagenix full-time.

Mable found her purpose and has now been a Health and Wellness coach for Isagenix for almost three years. She’s been able to travel the world and help impact people’s lives along the way.
