Abby knew from a young age that she loved the outdoors and was fascinated with creating a better world. She has always been passionate about conservation and was able to intern for Coosa Riverkeeper in 2019. She worked as the Vice-President of Community Service for her sorority for three years, where she was in charge of event planning, fundraising, and community outreach. Abby graduated cum laude from Birmingham-Southern College in May of 2020 with a degree in Urban Environmental Studies and Biology. She is ecstatic about pursuing a career in conservation biology and non-profit management. Water is a big part of Abby’s life because she was a competitive swimmer for 16 years and has taught swim lessons for six years. She is so excited to advocate for the Coosa and keep our waterways clean!
