Abigail Zeiler | Executive Director
Traveling south from Indiana, Abigail Zeiler began college at the University of South Carolina in 2010 where she fell in love with Columbia, USC and all things Gamecock related. She graduated with a double major in Entrepreneurial Management and Marketing along with a minor in Spanish. After graduation, Abigail began working for Push Advocacy, a digital marketing and advertising agency. At Push, she was responsible for creating, implementing and analyzing strategic digital marketing campaigns for political, advocacy and corporate clients. Abigail fell in love with digital communications and began searching for other passionate professionals to connect with in the Columbia area.
Not only did Abigail find a professional network, she found an opportunity where she herself could play a role in attracting and retaining talented business professionals in Columbia through her communication and leadership skills. She accepted a position as the Executive Director of Columbia Opportunity Resource (COR) where she is responsible for maintaining and developing relationships with other Columbia based professional organizations and key community leaders and coordinating and promoting initiatives that further COR’s mission of connecting professionals in the greater Columbia area to diverse and meaningful networks for leadership, service and fun.
When not in the office or attending professional networking events, you can find Abigail at the yoga studio, enjoying live music with her friends, or painting, chalking and cleaning both off of everything she owns.
