Meet the Staff
Director of Member Services
Kincaid has been in the orbit of POOCH since they first visited Lawrence in 2009. After living out of a van in the Bay Area and falling in with a group of radicals working on fighting gentrification and evictions in the Mission neighborhood in San Francisco, they returned to Lawrence to join the fight to organize communities against hunger and unfair housing here in their adopted hometown. In 2015, Kincaid and a group of friends reestablished the Lawrence chapter of Food Not Bombs, an activist organization founded on the belief that access to nutritious food is a human right. Kincaid became POOCH's Member Services Coordinator and Director of Operations in January of 2018 with the intention of engaging the POOCH community in establishing more equitable housing practices and outfacing organizing and advocacy centered around their mission to uphold anti-oppressive practices. They have also lived in Ad Astra Cooperative since 2017 and love every minute of it.
Director of Operations and Finance
Gabi has lived in Lawrence since 2012 when she left her small hometown of Concordia to attend school at the University of Kansas. Through her involvement at KU, she was introduced to Food Not Bombs in 2015 when she became further plugged into the Lawrence community. During the last few years, she has worked with organizations, activist groups, and community partners including the United Way of Douglas County, Black Lives Matter - LFK, Food Not Bombs, POOCH and more with the goal of actualizing a better future for the Lawrence community. With her background in nonprofit organization and resource development, she hopes to provide POOCH with foundational structure while promoting justice-oriented solutions to community issues. In her free time, she loves reading science fiction, being social, and trying unsuccessfully to do fancy eye makeup.
