Loyola School

Meet the Team

Gabriel Rotman - Director of Admissions
I grew up in Arlington, MA, a small town just outside Boston. After graduating from Trinity College and spending a year in New York I realized I really wanted to be working in a school with kids. Which led me to my first admissions position at St. Thomas More, a small boarding school in Connecticut. After a few years in the boarding school world, I knew I wanted to stay in admissions, but I also wanted to be back in New York. In the fall of 2010 I was lucky enough to find my new home at Loyola. For the past 9 years while working at the corner of 83rd and Park I have had the privilege of getting to meet so many interesting, exciting and engaging students and families. When I’m not meeting with families, interviewing students, or coaching baseball up at Randall’s Island, you can usually find me going for a run in Central Park or spending some time down by the waterfront at the Brooklyn Piers. Most importantly, I look forward to meeting you this fall and apologize in advance for my allegiance to my beloved Red Sox.
Ashley Pinnell - Associate Director of Admissions
Originally from the foothills of Northern California, I spent my undergraduate and graduate years in the Bay Area at Santa Clara University earning a bachelor's degree in Communication and a master's in secondary Social Studies education. When I am not at work, I like to spend as much time as I can exploring the city and travel whenever possible. I truly enjoy getting to know more about you through your personal statements or chatting during a campus visit and look forward to helping you and your family!

Sophie Snider – Assistant to the Admissions and Technology Offices


As a Kansas City native at heart, I am proud to bring some Midwest representation to the Admissions Team here at Loyola! I found a love for Jesuit education in my undergraduate time at Creighton University in Omaha, NE, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and Graphic Design. While at Creighton, my exposure to Ignatian spirituality and a “faith that does justice” compelled me to join the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. I served at NJ LEEP in Newark, NJ in 2018-19, and explored my passion for working with high school students. I also explored much of the metro and felt drawn to the energy here in NYC! I enjoy art, the outdoors, and meeting people, and I’m eager to build relationships with students and families at Loyola.
