Staff Attorney



Abby (she/her) joined the ACLU of Utah as a Staff Attorney in June 2023.

A New Hampshire native, Abby earned her bachelor's degree from Quinnipiac University, where she played rugby and won two NCAA National Championships. She attended Rutgers University Law School as a Social Justice Scholar, a scholarship and mentorship program for select students who demonstrated a commitment to public service. After law school, Abby clerked in the Supreme Court of New Jersey and the Federal District Court for the District of New Jersey. She also returned to Rutgers Law School to teach as an adjunct professor.

Outside work, Abby spends most of her time running, hiking, and planning trips to the national parks she has yet to visit.
