Abby has always been drawn to the world of design since a very young age. In college, she realized her passion for the impact that design can have and how it allows for the innate ability to create spaces in the built environment that impact occupants experiences, memories, and relationships. She studied architecture and design abroad in Australia and has had the opportunity to travel worldwide to develop an even broader outlook on design. For her thesis project in graduate school, she focused on hospitality design, specifically within hostels, which sparked her love for the hospitality industry.
Abby enjoys the nuances of diving into the nitty gritty and problem solving with the team to be able to execute a stellar design throughout the entire design process, from initial concept design all the way to the final product. Since joining //3877, she has obtained her NCIDQ licensure, been heavily involved in her local NEWH chapter including serving on the board as NEWH DC Metro Scholarship Director, and is the co-founder of an organization called District Design Collaborative which was created to explore the initiative of bringing people together, sharing ideas, challenging convention, and creating a stronger design community.
Traveling, naps, petting every dog she comes into contact with, hiking, competitive games of air hockey, and any food with lots of cheese
You should know that…Abby’s typical sandwich consists of mayonnaise with a side of bread.
