Abby received her EdD in Higher Education with a focus on Adult Learning and is a former curriculum developer and workplace educator. Though her terminal degree is from the University of North Texas, she will always be a Horned Frog at heart and does, in fact, bleed purple! Additionally, Abby has served in the Junior League of Collin County, is a life member of the Women’s Auxiliary of Children’s Health, and has participated in a variety of PTA boards, church committees, and other non-profit organizations in her community.

Outside of NCL, Abby loves spending time with her family and friends, traveling, attending Barre classes, listening to podcasts, and occasionally bingeing on the latest Netflix series.

Abby is excited and honored to serve as a Director and looks forward to investing in our organization by continuing to cultivate a relevant and meaningful NCL experience for all.
