International Student Adviser
Abby joined OIA in September 2021. Previously, she worked at the University of Hong Kong in the Centre for Applied English Studies, supporting students in developing their communication skills and helping them prepare for exchange semesters, job/internship opportunities, etc. She loves supporting students in achieving their academic, professional, and personal goals and brings that with her to her role at OIA. Originally from Alabama, she has both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Social Work from Auburn University and the University of Alabama, respectively, and worked in Thailand for two years after graduation as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
Outside of OIA, Abby likes to experiment with sewing her own clothes, ride her bike everywhere she goes (wish her luck in winter!), and express herself through aerial silk acrobatics.
