A past and current resident of Massachusetts, Abbey recently received a BA in Professional Writing & Rhetoric from Elon University in North Carolina. Her love for the environment, nature, and  farming led her to the life-altering experience of working on a farm in Portugal over the summer. She has also advocated in her local area for bat conservation and better composting practices.

Hoping to balance her English language skills with her environmental and sustainability passions, Abbey was ecstatic at the opportunity to write for Boston Green Blog. Her previous work includes copy editing, writing, consulting for writing, and interning at a local garden. Apart from simply spending time in nature, she enjoys cooking elaborate meals and reading books recommended by her mother.
