Abby is the Learning & Development Programs Manager for Conscious Capitalism, Inc. She holds a B.A. from West Chester University. Her professional background includes nonprofit volunteer and program coordination, project administration for a top pharmaceutical consulting company, and medical residency education program management. Abby now focuses primarily on event production, where she can apply her love of building inspiring experiences, facilitating meaningful connections and enthusiastically checking things off of extensive ‘to do’ lists. A one time entrepreneur, Abby, and her business partner secured two patents for their unique packaging technology, “The Friend End”. Balm Chicky Balm Balm was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank season 6 and although they didn’t get ‘a
deal’, product has been sold at a variety of retailers including Target stores, Wegman’s groceries and select Whole Foods Markets.
Abby is passionate about volunteerism and community involvement. She works closely with the Portland-based grassroots group Free Hot Soup which provides food and life-saving supplies to people living on the streets. Abby also produced a semi-annual fundraising event called FINDpdx, benefiting a local nonprofit providing support services to survivors of domestic violence and she also supports the Feast food festival which contributes funds to Hunger Free America and Urban Gleaners. In her free time, Abby gets into the great outdoors of her now home state of Oregon as often as possible and has recently begun a rather fervent weaving hobby that has overtaken a large portion of both her time and living room.
