Abigail Shaw

Abigail Shaw (she, her) is a transplant to New York from North Carolina, and strives to educate the public on persons with disabilities through her hobbies and work. As a long-distance runner, Shaw is a member and co-captain of the New York City chapter of Achilles International, an organization promoting mainstream athletics for people with disabilities. She has competed in several national half and whole marathons and triathlons. Since June of 2019, she has been on the Advisory Committee on Transit Accessibility for New York City Transit and currently acts as the co-chair. Whether by plane, train or automobile—Shaw’s preferred method of transportation is with her yellow lab guide dog from Guiding Eyes for the Blind by her side.
