Dr. Ashley Wilson
I believe in evidence-based medicine paired with a strong focus on compassion and the importance of caring for the whole family.
Who is Dr. Wilson?
Dr. Ashley Wilson is thrilled to join the Chisholm Trail Pediatrics team as of September 2019. While born in California, she moved to Houston at 3 and has refused to leave the great state of Texas ever since.
Her most beloved teachers are her young children - Foster and Charlie. Her passions outside of the office include trying new brunch spots with her husband, all things Disney, reading, running, and traveling (whether to cheer on the Bears in Waco or sightsee around the world). She also loves naps with her toddlers. Don't get her wrong, they do lots of fun awake activities, too. But toddlers are exhausting and snuggles are the best!
The Professional Side
Dr. Wilson graduated from Baylor University with a B.A in Medical Humanities (2011), attended UT Houston Medical School (2016), and completed her pediatric residency at UT Austin Dell Medical School (2019), where she was honored with the Karen Teel Award of Excellence.
Special interests include newborn care and autism spectrum disorder.
I clearly recall the first time a parent asked if she could hug me for helping her baby. It truly is such a privilege to make a difference in the lives of my patients and their families.
Very frequently things will not go as expected or planned! Nothing has taught me that better than being a mama myself. Be kind to yourself, be patient, and remember that it never hurts to pack a snack and extra change of clothes.
