Sarah Garcia

Sarah joined Webb in 2016. Her prior work was in the world of college admissions, where she recruited international and out-of-state students. Sarah holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Religion from St. Olaf College and a Master of Arts in English from California State Polytechnic University Pomona. Prior to this, Sarah attended a boarding school in England where she remembers with fondness the dichotomy of strict guidelines and playful pranks. With one brother belonging to the Webb School of California, Class of 2006, and the other brother being married in the Vivian Webb Chapel in 2005, now Sarah’s favorite place on campus due to its serenity, Sarah feels at home at Webb and is happy to return to a boarding community. She believes in the healthy relationship between hard work and fun. Sarah finds personal significance in the Honor Code at Webb, her life motto being that sometimes you have to do the things you don’t want to do, in order to become the person that you want to become.

Holly Arnold

Holly joined the Admission Office in 2023. Holly graduated from Elmhurst University in Illinois with a major in Political Science and has a graduate degree in Public Administration along with a Graduate Certificate in the Management of Nonprofit Organizations from the University of Illinois at Springfield. Most recently she worked at the Claremont Graduate University, Drucker School of Management where she served as the Associate Director of Admission and lead recruiter for the school’s management and specialized master’s and PhD programs.

Olivia Calvi

Originally from Southern California, Olivia returned home to join the Webb community in 2021 after working in admissions for an Early College program at Bard Academy and Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Massachusetts. Prior to that she attended Colorado College where she discovered a love for the liberal arts and experiential learning, earning a B.A. in Religion and Classics and minoring in Human Biology & Kinesiology. Olivia is passionate about social justice (specifically LGBTQ+ issues) and loves working in admissions because she gets to help youth find their voices and grow as leaders in their communities. Outside of work, you can find Olivia playing fetch with her cat River (it is the only trick he knows), at a garden center buying yet another cactus to add to her extensive collection, or out on a hike in one of the state’s many stunning mountain ranges. 

Emma Bustamonte

Emma grew up in California and enjoys everything surf, sand, and sun! Prior to joining Webb, Emma worked in the world of law as a legal assistant at a family law firm in Pasadena, CA. Emma’s passion for helping others inspired her to move into the educational field to make a difference. Emma is currently studying for her degree in Organizational Management, with the goal of continuing her professional career within education. Joining Webb in August 2021, Emma loves the genuine connection of community that Webb provides, making it feel like a home away from home.
