Welcome to our new college counselor

Waynflete is pleased to announce the hiring of Emily Birchby as our new Associate Director of College Counseling.

Emily brings with her nine years of experience in selective college admissions having served as an Associate Dean of Admissions at her alma mater, Bowdoin College. Among her many responsibilities in the Bowdoin Office of Admission, Emily served as the regional representative for Southern Maine and had the pleasure of reading a number of applications from former Waynflete students. In 2012, Emily earned her M.Ed. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education while simultaneously assisting the college counseling office of The Academy of the Pacific Rim.

Emily currently manages Bowdoin’s THRIVE program which supports student achievement during the transition from high school to college while providing mentorship and fostering a sense of belonging. In addition to her work at Bowdoin, Emily serves as a board member of Portland Community Squash and is an avid runner, skier, and cyclist. Emily lives in Yarmouth with her husband, Matt, and their two daughters, Parker and Winslow.
