ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Abigail (my pronouns: she/her/hers). I’m an interfaith chaplain and ordained Unitarian Universalist minister who is deeply invested in spiritually grounded healing and 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

Originally, I hail from Charleston, South Carolina, where I was born and raised. I came north to Boston University for college, where I became deeply involved in interfaith activism and social justice work. 

After that, I headed west to Claremont School of Theology in Southern California, an intentionally interreligious institute, to complete my M.Div. in Interfaith Chaplaincy.

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 also continue to explore the role of spiritual care in social justice movements, through activism work, and I 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).
