LAMM'S LOUNGE

Picture of Ashley Lamm

A little about Mrs. Lamm

My name is Ashley Lamm. I have worked for Wilson County Schools for 15 years. I am a 1999 graduate of Fike High School. I attended ECU with the NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship and majored in Elementary Education with a concentration in Child Studies. I remained at ECU to earn my Masters of Education in Counseling. In 2013 I earned an additional Masters in Administration through Gardner-Webb University.


I live in Wilson with my husband, (Wilson Police Department, retired). In our blended family we have 3 children, 2 boys and a girl. In my free time I enjoy going to concerts, reading and eating my husbands yummy food! We are also very busy with our kids who play at least 3 sports each. If you can't find me at school or at home, I'm on a ball field or court! #playball


I absolutely love working with high school students and their families. My favorite thing to help students do is to plan for their futures!!

I would love to hear from you! Ask the Counselor or leave a comment.
