Abigail Sebton

Operations and Development Officer, Urban Conservancy

At the Urban Conservancy, Abigail Sebton oversees all aspects of our organization’s operations from implementing our strategic plan to managing our project management and customer relationship softwares. She also directs our fundraising and development efforts and measures our impact through various evaluation techniques. Abigail is a switch-hitter for the UC’s StayLocal and the Front Yard Initiative programs, often serving as a liaison between local businesses, program partners, and government agencies.

Personally and professionally, Abigail is most grateful to have co-built an international non-profit social enterprise (founded in 2010). During her interdisciplinary studies at Tulane University, she worked in Central America where she learned the value of cross-cultural collaboration and local community investment. Abigail’s 5 years on the board of directors taught her skills in organizational oversight and policy-making as well as program development, evaluation, and impact investing.

Abigail moved to New Orleans in 2011 and first joined Urban Conservancy’s team as an AmeriCorps VISTA in 2015. She is committed to equitably growing New Orleans’ local economy to benefit both our residents and our environment.
