Hello! My name is Abigail (my pronouns: she/her/hers). I’m a board-certified interfaith chaplain and ordained Unitarian Universalist minister who is deeply invested in spiritual care and social justice work.
I’m all about the good news of interdependence, from galaxies to mycelium to me and you, and the fierce love that liberation asks of us–from building communities of care to dismantling oppressive systems. I believe we need each other, and I’m all in for the work of collaboration and collective dreaming/doing.
A Little More About Me
I’ve got deep Southern roots (you’ll know when you hear me say “y’all”), having been born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. I then attended Boston University for college, where I became deeply involved in interfaith activism and social justice work, particularly around anti-racism.
After that, I completed my Master of Divinity degree in Interfaith Chaplaincy at Claremont School of Theology in Southern California, an intentionally interreligious institution.
I now serve professionally as a chaplain in Portland, Oregon, where my work especially focuses on palliative care and journeying with people through the end of life.
I continue to engage in social justice movement work—including bringing spiritual care into movement spaces—and stay involved with my Unitarian Universalist community locally and nationally. In addition, I find joy in improv, creative writing, communing with trees, and whipping up my Nana’s recipe for biscuits and gravy (because the revolution will, obviously, include comfort food).
