Abi is a Triangle native who grew up in Durham. She spent some time in the Asheville area for college and then came back to the area to get her Masters of Social Work degree at UNC (Go Heels!). After getting her Master’s, she worked as a therapist for several years, mostly working with adolescents. In 2018, Abi felt called to make a career shift into the nonprofit world. She spent almost three years working for the Society of St. Andrew where she loved talking with farmers and helping volunteers get their hands dirty so that local food pantries could have greater access to fresh produce. In her role at TABLE, Abi is excited to continue the conversation of making a greater variety of foods more accessible for Orange County residents.

When she’s not at TABLE, Abi enjoys knitting, pretending to read while actually taking a nap, and perfecting her homemade ice cream recipe.
