Abby White


Abby’s favorite journalism teacher had a mantra: “Use your powers for good.”

At West Wing Writers, Abby puts her writing powers to work every day. Whether she’s supporting healthcare innovators, advancing nonprofits’ fights for equity, or working with cultural leaders to protect civil rights, Abby helps her clients make a difference.

Abby’s words have helped politicians and public figures argue for action in the pages of The Washington Post, on national television, and at global events. Her scripts for one of the world’s largest technology companies have reached tens of millions of people.

Prior to joining West Wing Writers, Abby also led advocacy efforts in her Jewish community, sang notes only dogs could hear with her a cappella group, and spent a summer observing elephant behavior — which taught her just as much about people.

Abby graduated with honors from Columbia University, where she majored in creative writing and American studies. Along the way, she edited a full-length book manuscript and published essays under her own byline on topics ranging from art created by Holocaust victims, to body representation on television.

Abby grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, and now lives in Washington, D.C. She still roots for every Cleveland sports team, with occasional success.
