Amy Abolafia has worked at Haverford since 2004. She manages programs for alumni volunteer involvement in the undergraduate admission process, serving to create and support increased opportunities for productive alumni engagement and to provide assistance to the Admission Office in its efforts to attract qualified candidates and convert admitted applicants to Haverford College first-year students. Amy manages the recruitment, training, and stewardship of alumni admission volunteers. In addition to working with these volunteers, Amy is responsible for coordinating all off-campus, prospective student admission interview assignments.
Amy has served as the admission volunteer coordinator since 2013. Prior to this role, Amy served in the Office of College Communications as the communications projects manager for nine years. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Maryland.
Amy enjoys spending time with her husband, Michael and son, Zack. Originally from the Baltimore area, Amy is a fan of the Baltimore Orioles and the Baltimore Ravens. Luckily, the corresponding Philadelphia teams are in opposite leagues/conferences, so she can cheer for her hometown and adopted-hometown teams without much guilt. Amy loves anything purple, visiting independent bookstores, reading, gardening, and trying new recipes.
