14 S Main Street
United States


Abbie Galie founded the Destination Medford social media tourism initiative in 2018 in an effort to showcase all of Medford’s small businesses, the town in which she lives. She has successfully spearheaded a myriad of promotional events to garner interest and revenue for the small businesses of downtown Medford such as Merry Main Street, Procrastinator’s Market, The Chocolate Walk, The Dicken’s Festival, and Trick-or-Treat on Main Street to name just a few. Mrs. Galie is a stakeholder on two fronts, both as a resident of Medford but also a proprietor in her family owned business, Lower Forge Brewery, located in downtown Medford. Mrs. Galie’s continued advocacy for small businesses has led to her recognition and appointment to Vice Chair of the Medford Economic Development Commission in 2020 as well as Vice President of the Main Street Merchants, and sitting on the board of the Medford Business Association, groups she works closely with in engineering and executing town events. Her devotion to bolstering the “local” movement exceeds beyond her entrepreneurial interests as she is also principal cellist in the South Jersey Pops Orchestra, a community orchestra comprised of professional and volunteer instrumentalists that she has been involved with since 2010.
