Darlene, CPNHS

Customer Service Manager

Darlene became a part of Abby's in 2011 after raising and homeschooling her 4 children (through high school) for 35 years. As a huge fan (and one of their best customers) of health and nutrition for most of her life, Abby’s was an obvious career choice. Her passion for helping people and talking about health was a natural fit and after 2 years she became the manager of the customer service department and eventually personnel director. Her favorite part of the job is getting to welcome and talk to the many friends, family and customers that visit the store regularly. She also loves learning the latest about health and nutrition, by virtue of working with and assisting Abby and Victor on special events and store initiatives.

Farm Director

David joined Abby's in 2014, after enjoying a 40 year career in the real estate industry with involvement in title insurance, casualty insurance, mortgage and real estate investment. His experience as a home organic gardener for 35 years is what got the attention of Abby Sayler when he was recruited to develop her vision of Abby’s Organic Community Farm.
