Our Team

Abiiba Howell, MS, MA

Data & Process Quality Coordinator

As Data and Process Quality Coordinator, Abiiba works with all departments to facilitate, process and streamline Arms Wide operations, while focusing on maintaining high quality standards.


Why I started with Arms Wide:

Arms Wide helps fulfill my commitment to serve those who benefit from advocacy.


My favorite part about my job:

Arms Wide offers an environment that offers the opportunity to learn, be challenged, share and contribute something new every day, knowing that our collective efforts help someone down the line.


My least favorite part:

My least favorite part is the potential to become numb to the staggering needs of children and other young people, yet important for awareness, as well as the constant need for professional mental health resources.


More about me:

I bring Arms Wide experience covering more than 20 years in compliance, multimedia and motion picture production, operational workflows and quality assurance, across public, private, government and film/television industry environments. An avid learner my mantra, “knowledge has no value unless it is shared,”  keeps me grounded in helping others. Volunteerism, advocacy and creating for the benefit of others drives me.


Ask me about:

Assemblage art, training, anecdotes, writing and my work on films, documentaries, reality, competition, true crime, food and home renovation shows.
