Abigail Covington

Member of the Board

An ever-growing, ever learning, entrepreneur herself, Abigail spends her time with us organizing our social media and developing our brand presence. Her heart breaks over stories of youth aging out of the system with nothing but their case file and a drive to the local park or homeless shelter, and she often talks about working to reduce the amount of sex trafficking that occurs in foster care.
