Abby grew up in Wilmington, Delaware before she moved to Burlington, Vermont to pursue education and exploration of the New England environment. After walking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2014, Abby fell in love with Central Oregon as well as the simplicity of living outdoors. Shortly after finishing the trail, Abby decided to move to Bend, Oregon and get back outside as a Field Instructor with Cascades. After a year and a half in the field, Abby now shares her care and compassion in a different way as Parent Coordinator for Cascades. In her free time, Abby can be found running and hiking on trails or cooking and baking in the kitchen.
