Annemiek Young appreciates the opportunities and challenges presented by a move to a new country and culture; raised in The Netherlands, she came to the United States at the age of seven and learned to speak English through immersion and engagement with supportive teachers. Annemiek and her family returned to their home country for regular extended visits, where she would temporarily re-enter the education system and experience firsthand the challenges and pleasures of embracing a country and culture after being absent from it for some time.
As the former Director of Lower School Admissions at The Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, and, as the current Director of Admission and Enrollment Management at Friends Select School in Philadelphia, Annemiek has almost a decade of experience in guiding families through the complexities of understanding a school’s curriculum, community, and program. She has worked with families from all around the world, offering them a framework with which to assess school options as they navigate an unfamiliar education system and determine which setting would be optimal for their child.
Prior to her work in independent school admissions, Annemiek was a practicing attorney. She was associated with Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, a global law firm, where she focused on labor and employment law.
After leaving private practice, Annemiek was on the faculty at Villanova University School of Law, instructing law students in legal writing, oral advocacy, and pre-trial practice. Her experience in education is varied, therefore, having taught at the graduate level and served in Admissions at the Lower School level!
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Boston University School of Law, Annemiek completed her final year of law school at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. She resides in suburban Philadelphia and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and Daisy, their Corgi.
