Admissions Fellows

The Admissions Fellows are a group of MA students dedicated to helping the school grow and thrive. They work closely with the Admissions Team and play a key role in many of the events MA holds. They are the faces of MA and, this year, will be delivering Virtual Tours for prospective families, attending Virtual Office Hours in Admissions to participate in Q & A sessions, and much more! 

Georgia B. '21

Hey there! My name is Georgia and I am a senior in the class of 2021. In addition to being an admissions fellows leader, I also play varsity lacrosse and water polo, TA for the human development program, and sing and play piano in the MA music program. I live in Tiburon with my family and our two golden retrievers. Please reach out to me at if you have any questions as I am happy to help out!

Jacob Y. '21

My name is Jacob, and I am a senior at Marin Academy. I am from Mill Valley and went to Marin Country Day for middle school. I am the captain of the baseball team and am a part of the music program. I also lead Be MORE (IDEQ group) and co-founded the MA student investment fund. 

Jessie F. '21

Hi everybody! My name is Jessie and I am a current senior from Mill Valley. I went to Mill Valley Middle School and am now so happy to be at MA — and to answer any questions that you might have. In addition to my work in Admissions, I have been involved with the MA Crossroads tutoring program, Human Development, student government, soccer, and lacrosse. Outside of school, I love to write, read, eat food with friends, and hang out with my fluffy dog.

Lily L. '22

My name is Lily, and I'm a junior this year. I love being an admissions fellow and a fellows leader, because I know the first impression of MA to an applying student is infinitely valuable, and I want to make the process of applying to MA an enjoyable experience for all potential students. I aspire to make visitors feel at ease, so they can have the most positive experience possible and truly learn what makes MA so unique. I am a student in the amazing music program here at MA, where I have learned not just about music, but also how to collaborate in bands and work well with others. I am an avid participant in MA's theater program both as a class and after school. Some of my most impactful memories of MA so far have been made being in one of the MA theater productions, and the welcoming MA after-school theater community really helped me adjust to the school in my freshman year. In my role as one of the editors of Echoes, our literary magazine, I seek to make the club a wonderful and welcoming place where people who are passionate about writing can come together to share in a supportive space and to be a part of a community of writers. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a fellow is helping make the application process exciting and comfortable for prospective students and their families, as I know what it's like to be in their shoes. 

Reilly F. '22

Hi! My name is Reilly, and I am a junior at Marin Academy, where I play tennis, basketball, and lacrosse, as well as take photography and fashion design. In addition to being one of the admission fellow leaders, I interact with freshmen in the classroom as a Human Development TA. I love MA for its amazing community and the relationships you are able to create with your teachers through the classroom set up. The high school process can seem daunting, but that is why I —and the rest of the amazing fellow leaders—am here, so we can make the process as comforting and familiar as possible!

Zack C. '21

Hi All! My name is Zack and I live in Mill Valley. I went to Mark Day School for elementary and middle school and have found MA to be an engaging and welcoming community. In addition to my work in Admissions, I am the captain of the golf team, the leader of the virtual cooking club, and the co-editor of the school’s satirical newspaper. Outside of the MA community, I love to try new foods, play golf with friends and family, and watch football.
