Nonprofit Powerhouse 

Abigail Oakes, 25
Manager of Nonprofit Services, Community Foundation of Sarasota County

Your nickname Abigail Oaktree is a personal favorite—I’ve always been a nature nerd. Your brand tagline: Power of love > love of power  Would you rather be an inventor or leader? Inventor! I like thinking creatively about challenges and then empowering others to lead the charge.   Biggest a-ha moment?  I studied science and math as an undergrad at New College, and it really solidified the concept that “there’s more than one way to peel an orange.”
