A recent alumni of the Global Communities Fellowship, Abigail joins the VIA team this fall to help manage and recruit incredible people to the VIA community. While she is still relatively new to VIA, she has seen the impact the work this organization is doing all throughout Asia and the US and is excited to share this knowledge and experience with others. Abigail grew up in Northern Kentucky, studied Physiology at the University of Colorado, spent a semester abroad in Lisbon, Portugal, and found her way to Vietnam after discovering that the non-profit world seemed much more interesting to her than the world of science. She spent the last year teaching at Tra Vinh University and working for the summer Sports for Social Change program. When she’s not working, you’ll find her in the mountains- hiking, skiing, and camping are her favorite weekend activities.
