A West Hartford native, Abby briefly relocated to the Pioneer Valley where she earned a degree at Hampshire College. She then returned to the Hartford area eager to put to use her extremely practical triple concentration in American studies, religion, and creative writing. Abby feels quite at home in Real Art Ways' multidisciplinary space.
Abby spends her free time chatting up preachers, rewriting myths, uncovering state secrets, and reading everything from the Metamorphoses to the instructions on her shampoo bottle.
Before joining Real Art Ways, Abby worked in development at the National Yiddish Book Center and freelanced for Metromix CT.
