Meet Abigail: Special Projects Coordinator


Abigail is joining our team for a few months to assist in special projects. We are so glad to have her join us!

Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I grew up in San Antonio, and then went to college at the University of Texas at Austin where I studied Social Work. After graduating from UT, I moved to Athens, Georgia for a year and received a Master of Social Work degree with a focus in community development and nonprofit management. I have a special heart for communities and people groups living in poverty. Iā€™m a lover of the Spanish language, Latino culture, spontaneous fun opportunities, being with other people, and eating ice cream.  

What is your ministry background? 

I have spent a lot of time working with a ministry in Guatemala, where I first developed a passion for the poor and a love for the latino population. Throughout college, I worked as a youth group leader and had so much fun leading and mentoring high school girls. 

What is your role at BP going to be? 

I will be working on a number of different nonprofit development projects with my main focus being on the development of outcome measurement and assessment tools.  

How did you hear about BP? 

I first heard about Blueprint when I was in high school and Dee Dee, Executive Director of BP, was my small group leader. 

What are you looking forward to being on staff with BP? 

I am excited to be a part of the team, share new ideas, and contribute to this work that is blessing our city!  

What can we find you doing in your free time? 

Hanging out with friends or family, or taking a nap.

Favorite movie? 

Ahh probably Father of the Bride 

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Bean and cheese tacos or a cheeseburger with cheese and ketchup only, hard call. 

Come volunteer with us this summer and chat with Abigail!
