New Face Around Our Space: Ashley Clay

Meet Ashley Clay, Upper School director of student life and high school counseling! Ashley grew up in Lithonia and has a bachelor’s degree in sociology and psychology from Emory University, a master’s degree in teaching from Bellarmine University, and a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Georgia. This is her eleventh year in education, and she’s worked as both a teacher and a school counselor. She lives with her husband and their two dogs – Max and Finley. She loves reading, going to concerts (especially if Beyonce is performing!), having brunch with friends, and decorating her home. 

What are you most excited about this year?
Getting to know the TCS students, faculty and families! 

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
I’m a beach lover, and Negril, Jamaica has a special place in my heart. 

Which fictional character would you most like to meet?
I would LOVE to meet Tonks from Harry Potter. She’s a Hufflepuff like me! Even better, Tonks is quick-witted, forgiving, and doesn’t shy away from being true to herself.
