Maddie graduated from the University of Virginia in 2020 with a degree in Kinesiology and Religious Studies. While at UVA, Maddie experienced the Lord in transformative ways through community and discipleship in Chi Alpha. Following graduation, she jumped into the internship, planning to serve a year before heading to graduate school. However, she fell in love with working with college students during an important time in their lives. Believing God had more for her here, she joined our staff the following fall. In her free time, you can find Maddie sipping Shenandoah Joe’s coffee, hanging with her friends, or playing soccer!
Abigail Herrera and her husband, Rigo, relocated to Virginia in 2014 after graduating from Louisiana State University and getting married. GEAUX TIGER!

Abigail's favorites include coffee touring, tickling their son, traveling, and cajun cooking.
