Ashley Cullen-Williams is a self-care activist, counselor, educator, and grant manager in Lake County, Illinois.

A wife and mother with over ten years of student empowerment, development, and relationship-building experience, Ashley gave relentlessly. Her well of supportees grew as her cup ran dry and she experienced burnout. She changed and manifested Honey B. Wellz, a lifestyle grounded in wellness and choice. HONEY B. Wellz provides a collection of radical self-care experiences and supports individual change by encouraging outliers, essential workers, and black kinfolk to pivot and prioritize self-care for the success of our community (hive).

 

Ashley holds a Bachelor of Science in Urban Planning Community Development from Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University and a Master’s in School Counseling from National Louis University. As a former licensed psychotherapist and grant manager, she’s bridged these two unique career paths by providing escape routes from trauma zones to success through authentic conversations and college access. She’s created and facilitated programming with the Waukegan Public Library such as “Yikes! The Stigma is Real”, a community mental health conversation using Hip-Hop; a courageous community discussion centered on the youth coined, “Breaking Bread”; and is a contributing author to the published book, “Her Voice: A Legacy of Modeling, Mentoring, and Othermothering.”

Ashley is a powerful and compassionate force, who models integrity by encouraging the room to engage in social-emotional learning and self-care.
