Abby Adams (C’83) followed her brother, Scott Spiegel (C’73, L’76) to Georgetown University and graduated with a B.A. in government and English. Adams’ career in the for-profit sector included 15 years as a literary agent at Creative Artists Agency and most recently in the nonprofit sector as founding board member and executive director of Determined To Succeed, a college access and success program for first-generation low-income students. Her commitment to ensuring the success of first-generation students has lead her to chair the Georgetown Scholars Program (GSP) Southern California Regional Network as well as mentoring many GSP students.

Adams’ proudest achievements are her thirty-year marriage to Patrick Adams (B’81) and their three children – Kellogg (B’16), Cooper (B’21), and Riley (C’24)
