Hailing from Chicago, Abby moved to Asheville to accept the Community Living Manager role at Beacon Transitions. From 2018 to 2020 she worked as a counselor at Talisman summer camp for adolescents with ASD. From this experience, she developed a passion for working with individuals with disabilities.
While in college, she continued to learn about a variety of disabilities both in and out of the classroom. Outside of the classroom, she provided respite services, participated in social activities in the Best Buddies program, and mentored young children during remote learning.
Abby graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Human and Educational Services. After graduation, she worked with Autistic children in a therapeutic setting. She also worked as a barista, so she knows how to make you an excellent latte.
Abby enjoys hiking, playing cards, painting/drawing, solving Rubik’s cubes, and kayaking. She is also fluent in American Sign Language.
