Abbey is very excited to be a part of the Arts and Sciences advising team! Abbey believes in exploration and has pursued various jobs and careers, including spending time as a waitress, a camp counselor, a temp in a medical manufacturing facility, a copy editor, and a college advisor and career coach. Abbey earned her bachelors degrees in English: Creative Writing and Journalism at the University of Kansas. (Rock chalk!!) After a brief stint in advertising, she returned to earn her masters degree in Higher Education Administration.
Abbey has completed two half marathons and a marathon (and hopes to run another soon!). She considers her marathon and hiking Mt. St. Helens to be two of her greatest accomplishments. Abbey spends her free time running, reading, hiking and cooking with her partner Patrick, playing cards with friends, and dreaming of the day she can finally adopt a dog. She holds a deep love for the beach, dogs and Young Adult literature.
