Across the globe, humanity faces a host of challenges that can seem daunting to confront. The potential that exists in the business community for brave solutions to these challenges is palpable. Through business, we have the ability to alleviate poverty, create equity and justice, support health and well being for all and so much more. As the Conscious Capitalist community grows, so will the positive impact we’ll see due to the efforts of dedicated conscious business leaders around the world.

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 events 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”.

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 that benefits 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 over taken a large portion of both her time and living room.
