Dr. Ashley Wilcox Halpain was born and raised in Port Neches, Texas near the Gulf Coast. She grew up in a large, close family with three sisters and two brothers. Growing up with her father working as a veterinarian and her mother volunteering in animal rehabilitation, she grew to love medicine through countless hours of feeding and rehabilitating everything from puppies and kittens to squirrels and owls. She was torn between a career in human versus veterinary medicine but her love of children ultimately pushed her to pursue a career in pediatrics.
As a third generation Aggie, Dr. Halpain graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas A&M University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science. During college, she studied abroad in Dusseldorf, Germany. Following college, she continued her Aggie education by attending medical school at the Texas A&M Health Science Center.
Dr. Halpain moved from Texas to Little Rock, Arkansas in 2011 to begin her pediatric residency at Arkansas Children’s Hospital through the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences program. Following residency, she was honored to serve as Pediatric Chief Resident at Arkansas Children’s Hospital from 2014-2015. She joined the All For Kids Pediatric Clinic in Summer 2015. Dr. Halpain is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
In her spare time, Dr. Ashley Halpain enjoys spending time with her husband, Daniel, and their three dogs: Lucky, Abby and Otis. They like to spend time outside enjoying nature, mountain biking, and going back to Texas to visit Dr. Halpain’s large family. They have a passion for traveling around the world and learning about different cultures.
Dr. Halpain’s Practice Philosophy:
I feel honored and privileged that the Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to meet and help care for so many wonderful families. I feel that it is my duty to care for your family as I do my own and to keep my knowledge up to date with the most current advances in medicine. My greatest satisfaction is in seeing my patients and their families grow and change in amazing ways throughout the years. I am so blessed to get to be a small part of that!
