About Ms Cocca
Hello and welcome! My name is Ashley
Cocca, and I am the School Counselor for
Bache-Martin Elementary. This is my fifth
year working with the Bache-Martin family!
I have a varied background in education,
school counseling and the mental health
field and I am dedicated to bring this
experience and knowledge to my position at
Bache-Martin, each and every day.
A little background - I graduated from the GSE at the University of Pennsylvania with a dual Master's degree in Education and Professional Counseling. I served as a School Counselor in the School District of Philadelphia for 3 years and then decided to enter the mental health field, exclusively, in order to further develop my clinical skills. During that time, I worked as a clinician in Out Patient Therapy, Mobile Therapy, Student Therapeutic Services and Drug & Alcohol Group Therapy.

I lived in the Fairmount neighborhood (where I met my husband!) for 6 years and now live in Brewerytown. We have a spunky five year old daughter and an (almost!) two year old son. I love to run, eat Italian food, drink tea at OCF, and be with my family and friends.
I look forward to sharing with, as well as learning from, all of you!
- Ms. Cocca :)
