​Jaclyn Partridge

Jaclyn Partridge completed her Master of Science in Counseling Psychology at Chatham University and her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Grove City College with a Minor in Marriage and Family Studies. Her studies in these disciplines, her experience in testing and her proclivity towards working with young adults have equipped her to navigate the process and study of test preparation with VSA students. Mrs. Partridge has always enjoyed working with children and their families in her career as both a teacher and community mental health counselor. She pursued a career in teaching, having developed an Introduction to Psychology class for Trinity Christian School in Pittsburgh, PA based on Dr. David Myer’s text Exploring Psychology. She was humbled and overjoyed to have taught Psychology at TCS for four years up until the birth of her second child. She has also delighted in her career in mental health counseling working in a home-based family therapy setting and also in behavioral health at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. In her home life, Jaclyn is married to Elliott and mother to two beautiful, energetic and curious toddlers. Her activities include co-leading a women’s bible study, reading with her book club ladies, cake decorating, cooking, crafting and singing. She is a lover of learning and discovery! New to VSA, Mrs. Partridge hopes to continue her growth and learning in the direction in which God is guiding her, ever hoping to share the graces and mercies of Christ which are new daily!
