Ashley Whitfield

Hello! I am Ashley Whitfield and I am excited to serve as school counselor for Bayou View Middle School. Although I was born and raised in Gulfport, much of my counseling experience took place in Georgia, where I lived for 13 years after Hurricane Katrina.  I am a Certified School Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Mississippi and Georgia. I received a Masters in Counseling from Mercer University in 2012 and a Bachelors in Psychology from New York Institute of Technology (online) in 2009. 
I am a wife and mother to three awesome children. I enjoy hiking, visiting museums, cooking, and date nights with my husband. Community health is my passion and I look forward to helping my students overcome obstacles, utilize their strengths, and reach their goals! 
Please feel free to reach out with questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions about how I can best support your child. We are all in this together!
