A is for Abby, which also stands for:
Alert (after coffee)
What happens when you send a Wisconsin girl to the big city? Odds are they’ll come running home (and not just for the cheese). Abby knows this first-hand after working in community relations for the Philadelphia 76ers. While her job was a blast – using the power of sports to create positive change in communities – her roots brought her back to America’s Dairyland.
She switched from hoops to herds in 2017 and hasn’t looked back. Abby’s love for animals started because of her dad’s job at a nature center; she was holding snakes, tarantulas, turtles, bats and lots of other animals since she could walk. Her mom’s side of the family had dairy farms, where she learned that the best cheese curds are ones that squeak. Since her career in agri-marketing has begun, she’s also added a few new things to her resume:
- Cow-selfie superstar
- Runaway drone rescuer
- Breakfast-on-the-Farm aficionado
Executive assistant is her title at Filament, but at home it’s Dog Mom. Wally and Winnie, her Mini Goldendoodles, are the lights of her life. When she’s not hanging out with her pups, she’s probably volunteering, traveling, watching HGTV or mastering Disney songs on the piano. If you can’t tell, Abby is no-doubt a Cheesehead. Name a better combination than cheese curds and the Green Bay Packers; we’ll wait.
