Abigail Melton

Student Career Advisor since 2018

Hello! I’m a senior here at William & Mary, majoring in anthropology and minoring in chemistry. I’m originally from Oakton, Virginia, but most of my family is in Williamsburg now, so I call here home! In addition to working at Cohen Career Center, I also do research in an archaeology lab on campus and serve on the executive boards of Phi Sigma Pi, honor’s fraternity as the Alumni and Inter-Chapter Relations coordinator, and Alpha Chi Omega Sorority as the Vice President of Facilities Operations. Off campus, I volunteer at Avalon Center, am a volunteer EMT, and work at an escape room! Last summer I studied abroad in Kenya to learn archaeology field methods and study human evolution. I’m hoping to combine my love for anthropology and medicine to pursue a career as a doctor for underserved areas and populations after graduation. During my time as a Student Career Advisor, since Fall 2018, I have loved seeing countless students come through Cohen and take advantage of our many resources and become more confident in their career exploration and goals, and I’m excited to continue to help in the process!
