Abigail Sebton

Operations and Development Coordinator, Urban Conservancy

At the Urban Conservancy, Abigail Sebton oversees all aspects of effectively implementing our strategic plan. For StayLocal and the Front Yard Initiative she also serves as a liaison between local businesses, program partners, and government agencies. Abigail manages projects that address challenges in the urban built environment and prepares reports that measure our organization’s impact.

Abigail is grateful to have co-built an international non-profit social enterprise since 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 and evaluation.

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.
