Abigail Adams is an expert in playful learning and UX for kids. She is on a lifelong quest to play every day, which has guided the twists and turns of her career. She is currently Director of Product at HOMER, where she focuses on creating playful and efficacious learning apps for preschool-aged kids. Before finding her place in product management, she was an elementary school teacher, a non-profit professional, and a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa. During graduate school, she interned at Sesame Workshop, Tiggly, and Tinybop, after which she snuck her way into her dream job leading product on Toca TV, a new video product for Toca Boca. She spent a year building ESPN+, a subscription video streaming platform on the ESPN app, with 20 million monthly active users. She recently taught her first adjunct graduate course at NYU, where she earned her Master’s degree in Digital Media Design for Learning.
Abby is also a proud holder of an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and will complete her MBA in 2023, both from the University of Illinois. She lives in Brooklyn with her lovely boyfriend and far too many kids' toys.
