Abby Jorgensen is a firm believer in the dignity of the human person and strives to enact this in her roles as wife, mom, sociologist, and birth and bereavement doula. In her work as a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Notre Dame, Abby works to apply her charisms of knowledge and teaching to align academic understandings of family, politics, and culture with people’s lived experiences. She aims to foster a loving politic based on dignity and the pursuit of truth. In both her academic and doula work, she is on a mission to accompany parents and future parents navigate parenthood. Abby lives on a little city lot in South Bend, Indiana, with her husband, daughter, two dogs, cat, and five chickens. She once designed and taught a course about cultural sociology using Star Trek.
