At the young age of six, Abby was introduced to the magic of international travel, when her family toured through eleven European countries in their new Volvo station wagon. This experience inspired Abby to learn German in high school and participate in a student exchange program (twice!) in Hamburg, and study abroad in Freiburg, Germany, her junior year of college. Upon graduation from the College of the Holy Cross, Abby was an Assistant English teacher in Lilienfeld, Austria through the Fulbright Teaching Assistantship program.
After returning home and spending a few years in corporate banking, and another brief stint in teaching, Abby found her calling while working a temporary job in Human Resources at Au Bon Pain Corporation. Her temporary job turned permanent, and during her five year tenure she pursued her professional certification in Human Resources (PHR), and also consumed many croissants! Ready for a change, she then moved on to a position at Panther Global Group to gain broader HR experience. Ultimately Abby wanted to return to the education field, and was lucky enough to find SFS! After joining as an HR Generalist in 2012, Abby is now the Director of HR and is thrilled to be part of a team that helps to create a new generation of environmental stewards.
