Meet Our Counselors

Amy Lucas

Hello, 

My name is Amy Lucas and I love being a school counselor at Ringgold Middle School.  I have my master's degree in Counselor Education from California University of Pennsylvania, and I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.  In addition, I am Student Assistance Program (SAP) certified, a member of the American School Counselors Association (ASCA) and Pennsylvania School Counseling Association (PSCA).

It is my goal to aid students in achieving academic, career, and personal/social development.  This goal will be met in a variety of ways, including individual counseling, group counseling, classroom lessons, and consulting with parents, teachers, and staff.

My hobbies include going to concerts, traveling, reading, camping, and spending time with my family and friends.

Jessica Mooney

My name is Jessica Mooney, I am the School Counselor for grades 7 and 8. I love being a School Counselor and working with students on their social emotional wellness and advocating for their education. Becoming a school counselor was one of my life's dreams.  I have my master's degree from Carlow University in Professional Counseling with a focus on School Counseling. I earned my bachelor's degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Sociology with a minor in criminal justice.  In addition, I am student assistance program (SAP) certified, and a member of the Pennsylvania school counseling association and the Allegheny county school counselor's association. 

I strive to promote a positive environment for my students to feel comfortable in learning skills that will provide them with positive social and emotional development. I work collaboratively with teachers, administration, families, and service providers to ensure best possible outcomes for our students. My goal is to provide students with the skills they need to be independent and motivated learners at school and in everyday life. 

My interests include spending time with my family traveling, camping, and cooking. I love the beach and summer weather.
