Hello! My name is Gina Keenan, and I am one of the three school counselors in the guidance department at Phoenixville Area Middle School. I received my Bachelors of Science in Human Development and Family Studies from Penn State University. My Masters of Science in Counseling and Human Relations is from Villanova University where I also obtained certification from the National Board of Certified Counselors. I started my career as a middle school counselor at PAMS in 1997 and since then have been fortunate to work with remarkable students and their parents as well as incredible colleagues. My favorite part of working with middle school students is providing individualized support essential for personal, academic, and social growth throughout grades six through eight.
