Union College, BA, NY, 2016

Humanities, Basketball, Lacrosse, Dorm Parent.

Far from Winchendon in County Galway, Ireland Abby got an endorsement that teaching was for her. A Galway student gave Abby high marks for singing the ABCs and for showing her how to draw “5s” properly. Winch students are past their ABCs and 5s, but Abby’s enthusiasm for teaching continues to shine whether she is in the classroom, in the dorm, on the basketball court, or on the lacrosse field.

  • Go to comfort food: My grandmother’s Dutch chocolate pie. It’s a holiday favorite, and instantly reminds me of home.
