New Faces, New Spaces – MSM Counseling Program Grows

The Counseling program at Mount St. Mary Academy has grown this summer.  Amy Owens (standing), Counseling Director, along with Sr. Joan Pfauser (seated, left) and Sadie (seated, center), welcomed a new staff member in July.



Mrs. Emily Coffey (seated, right) has joined the Counseling staff and will concentrate her time on the College Application/Acceptance process.   She will assist Mount St. Mary students with the college application process by narrowing their college list down, work-shopping essays, answering application questions, writing letters of recommendation, and anything else the girls may need in regards to College!


Sister Joan Pfauser  will be focusing on the Freshman Experience.  As the Freshman Counselor, she will assist the ninth grade students as they transition to high school.  She will focus on academic, social, and emotional issues and work closely with the Freshmen teachers to ease any transition issues students may have.



Mrs. Amy Owens  will oversee the Counseling program and focus her time on academic, social, and emotional issues with sophomore, junior, and senior students.   She will continue to lead the Student Wellness Team and work with teachers and staff to monitor our students’ needs.



Mount St. Mary Academy, sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, develops young women with a moral and intellectual foundation rooted in Catholic tradition.  Mercy-minded and college-prepared, our students meet the future with wisdom, compassion, and integrity.
