Former Senior Assistant Director of Admission at Stanford University

PROFILE

Abby is a former Senior Assistant Director of Admission at Stanford University’s Office of Undergraduate Admission, and previously worked in admission at Case Western Reserve University. 

While at Stanford University, Abby worked with international students, reviewing applications from around the world. She worked directly with Stanford’s performing and visual art department faculty to facilitate the review of applicants’ arts portfolios and co-managed the transfer admission application review cycle. As a former varsity collegiate athlete, Abby served as a Stanford admission athletic liaison, and assisted coaches and prospective scholar athletes in the recruitment process. With extensive experience supporting students navigating niche admission processes, such as conservatory admission, or athletic recruitment, Abby looks forward to helping students move in the direction of their future goals.

Before working in admissions, Abby graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in Art History and Studio Art.  In addition to being a varsity soccer player, Abby was a member of the Oberlin Pottery Co-Op, served as an admission intern, and spent a semester abroad in Italy.  Abby is a strong proponent of a liberal arts education and believes in an undergraduate experience that will provide exploration and diversity of experience. She is currently working on her Master of Education at Harvard University.

As a counselor, Abby deeply enjoys developing strong relationships with students and families, serving not only as a resource and cheerleader throughout the college application process, but also as a mentor who genuinely wants to get to know her students.  With this approach, Abby can cater her counseling style to the needs of the individual and is comfortable jumping in at any stage of the process.  As someone who understands the power of an authentic personal statement, Abby strives to assist students in crafting an application that sincerely reflects their interests and personality. Acting as a myth-buster, she enjoys de-mystifying the admission process and making it a fun journey together.

In her spare time, you can find Abby riding her bike, playing pick-up soccer, or spending time on the pottery wheel.
