Abi got her feet wet in journalism by freelancing for an alternative weekly in Atlanta for a few years as a music journalist. When she realized she needed health insurance and more money to pay bills, she worked a 9 to 5 as a writer and copy editor at a corporate law firm. After three years, it dawned on her that this most definitely wasn’t a good fit (ya think?) and decided to give freelancing a try again, where she was a ghostwriter of blog posts and industry articles, and wrote press releases, biographies, mission statements, web content, and any other editorial-related branding. All that in addition to writing feature stories for her hometown's community news website. Thankfully, Abi was hired at Romper after three years of that, but she still freelances from time to time.
She lives in Atlanta with her husband, two cats, two beagles, and her son, Jack — the newest member of “the funny farm.” She hopes Jack will grow up to love animals, hiking, comic books, metal music, and The Golden Girls as much as she does. Dorothy Zbornak is Abi’s soul sister and patronus.
