Abigail joined GMRI in October 2022 as a Resilience Fellow through an AmeriCorps-funded program based at Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG). The Resilience Corps aims to build climate resiliency in communities throughout the Greater Portland area through various sustainability-related projects. Abigail works in the Climate Center at GMRI to promote community science projects, engaging coastal communities in topics of coastal climate resilience.
