Isabel grew up on The Gunnery campus and graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall, where she was a member of the gospel choir and the female a cappella group, a three-sport varsity athlete, captain of the volleyball team, and a senior prefect, and where she was selected as a senior class speaker. She graduated from Georgetown, majoring in English and minoring in both government and justice and peace studies. As an undergraduate, she rowed varsity crew for four years, was trained in the university’s student-athlete leadership academy for three years, and was a contributing writer for two university publications: The Independent and The Voice. In Washington D.C. she also served through Friday Foods—a community-service group that works with some of the city’s homeless population—and Grassroots Hoyas—a student-athlete service group devoted to educating some of the city’s adolescents about HIV/AIDS. She has also worked as a head lifeguard at the Washington Beach Club and a camp leader at the Navy rowing camp. She’s traveled in Spain, Mexico, France and Belize (where she performed malaria prevention service work); she has dual citizenship in the U.S.A. and Spain; she speaks Spanish fluently; she has completed a certificate course in conflict analysis; and she’s a certified lifeguard and wilderness first responder. At Taft, Isabel serves as the Maillaird Teaching Fellow in English, coaches volleyball, skiing and crew and lives in USGD.
