Abigail is the Director of Events Communications at BIO. Although she has lived in the Washington, DC, area for nearly eight years, she still considers Virginia Beach home, especially with her parents and closest friends still in the area. According to Abigail, there is nothing better than sitting on the beach with a good book and cold drink. In her spare time, she enjoys visiting antique stores, finishing her twin sister Brooke’s sentences and spending time with her two boys, Frank her English bulldog, and JP her soon-to-be husband. Check back often for updates, Abigail’s take on BIO related events, and much more. And please, be kind, this is her first venture in to the blogging world!
