About Abby:

What is your original hometown?
St. Louis, MO 

What is your Alma mater?
Webster University

What was your college major?

What hobby do you wish you had more time for?
Crafts. I love DIY projects but, I rarely have time for them anymore. 

If you weren't an admission representative, what would you be?
As a kid I always thought I'd be on SportsCenter.  So, maybe a sports journalist!

What talent do you have that would surprise your co-workers?
I'm really handy.  I think it stems from being crafty and enjoying DIY projects, but I tackle most of the home-improvement projects in my house. 

What is your best advice for the college search process?
Visit as many schools as you can.  I had no idea how perfect Webster was for me--in fact, I wasn't seriously considering it--until I took a campus tour and met a faculty member during my visit.  Getting a chance to physically tour campus allowed me to picture myself on campus for the next four years.
