An essay coach and medical mentor with Moon Prep, Abigail works  with her students to foster intentional partnerships, providing them the space and tools they need to openly share ideas while also offering genuine advice and feedback tailored toward their individual applications. She is passionate about helping students share their unique experiences, personal insights, and career aspirations through well-crafted essays and personal statements for traditional and direct medical programs. From the initial brainstorming session to the submission of the final draft, she is dedicated to supporting students in their academic, medical, and professional journeys.

Alongside her mentoring at Moon Prep, Abigail is currently a medical student at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. Having successfully endured the medical school admissions cycle herself, Abigail has firsthand experience in the application and interview process from start to finish. As a result, she knows the importance of having a mentor during what many consider a grueling yearlong process and stands ready and enthusiastic to assist aspiring BS/MD, BS/DO, and traditional medical students. Together with her personal and professional experience in writing, editing, and revising, Abigail has honed the necessary skills and knowledge needed to effectively help students create meaningful narratives that will showcase their strengths with honesty and intentionality.

Previously, Abigail served as both an undergraduate supplemental instruction leader, medical scribe trainer, and chief scribe, gaining hands-on and one-on-one experience with healthcare professionals and providers. She also has experience in supporting community health initiatives and addressing health disparities through Greenville-based programs like Remote Area Medical Free Clinic, Connect for Health, Grow to Greatness, SAFE Sleep, and Wheels to Wellness.
