A Pacific Northwest native, Abigail received her bachelor's degree at Portland State University with a minor in Special Education. She spent some time working in residential care for adults with developmental disabilities and traveling with an organization that holds bicycling clinics for children with disabilities, both of which fueled her passion for promoting self-efficacy and empowering children to achieve their goals. She received her doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Pacific University in August of 2019 and worked in a Portland-based clinic for one year before joining the team at Play Works! Outside of the clinic, she loves spending time outdoors with her husband and two dogs, running, and biking. She looks forward to learning more about life in the Gorge and exploring all it has to offer!
