Abby is currently a Walk Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association and covers the Northern and Northeast portions of Indiana. She manages the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in the Fort Wayne and Michiana areas. This is her 6th walk season. The Fort Wayne walk is the 2nd largest in the state, raising over $230,000 in 2021. Abby has a passion for those suffering from this terrible disease, and their caregivers, and works hard every day to provide education and raise funds to find a cure.
Abby has lived in Fort Wayne for a little over 15 years, transferring with her husband, son and daughter from Sylvania, Ohio. Her career has been an interesting journey through several industries including a Regional Buyer for Coach House Gifts, a Regional Marketing Manager for Burger King, a Marketing Services Manager for Sunoco MidAmerica and a Fabric Buyer for Annie’s Catalog.
Family is the most important to her, and she has always been involved in her children’s schools, serving on the Board of their elementary school at Sylvania Franciscan Academy and as President of the Music Boosters at Bishop Dwenger High School. As her children have grown, she has become a baseball mom, following her son, Paul, throughout his career and the dishwashing mom of Grace, who has recently opened a special-order bakery.
She graduated with a BBA in Marketing and an MBA in Management from the University of Toledo.
