Abbie Shaw

Abbie’s role with the Maine Energy Americorps Program (MEAP) involves community outreach and education about energy efficiency with focus on the University of Maine campus and helping low-income communities winterize their homes. She graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with a degree in Anthropology and a minor in Sustainable Development. Currently, she is attending the University of Maine for a graduate certificate in Information Systems. After spending her last several winters traveling through Asia and the Americas, Abbie discovered passion in seeking to understand the human-environment relationship with special regards to local culture. This sparked advocacy work with environmental nonprofits to raise awareness about how everything we do is connected to our environment and ocean/shark conservation.
