Abby moved to Norfolk in 2001 to study International Development at UEA and subsequently worked for several locally based charities and organisations including the National Trust, Age Concern Norfolk, CAFOD, Banana Link and the UEA. Following further study at UEA, Abby now works as a children’s speech and language therapist. Abby started learning the violin aged 7 and the flute aged 11, and feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to play in orchestras and small ensembles throughout school and university. She continues to play violin with a Norwich-based amateur orchestra, and enjoys the wonderful and varied music scene that Norwich and Norfolk have to offer. Abby joined the Norfolk Community Arts (NORCA) Board of Trustees in 2015.
