About Ms. Mellick & Ms. Whisner

I am Ms. Mellick and I am so excited to be your school counselor at Burgess-Peterson Academy! This is my 8th year in the greatest profession in the world. When I am not spreading the love at BPA, I am usually with my family: Ryan and Hazel. We love to go on adventures together, dance, sing, color, and ride scooters in the neighborhood. 

Why do I show up to school every day? I believe all human beings need to feel a sense of belonging and contribution to something larger than themselves. It is my job to ensure that EVERY student feels that they truly belong to the BPA family, with an active role in making a difference to the community. 

I am so honored to support YOU in the journey! 


Hi! My name is Ms. Whisner, and I am so excited to be an intern at BPA! I am currently a school counseling graduate student at Georgia State University. I have a background in teaching at the elementary level, and I can't wait to learn and grow as a future school counselor. In my free time, I love to run, do yoga, spend time with loved ones, and read. 


I desire to empower students and guide them in developing tools they can carry with them throughout their educational experience and beyond. Empowering students starts with truly knowing them as people and ensuring they feel seen, heard, and cared for. I believe in a holistic approach to education to facilitate growth, support learning, and help students internalize their innate value and worth. I am so grateful to be a part of the BPA family this year!
