"Life would be unbearably dull if we had answers to all our questions."
Abby began her career with Harry Meyering in 2000 in the ICF. In 2003, she transferred to the SILS/SLS In-Home program as a DSP. Abby worked her way up to Community Living Coordinator and then SILS Program Manager in 2015.
Originally from St. Peter, Abby now lives in Mankato with her husband. They are avid consumers of science fiction and fantasy books, television, and movies. They enjoy time at home with their cats, road-trip vacations, and gathering with family and friends.

She has done other non-profit volunteer and board work in the past, including as a founding board member of For Pets, an animal welfare organization.
Abby is a strong advocate for a person-centered approach to services; she enjoys helping others use their strengths to live successful, independent lives based on their own definitions. She continues to learn and grow in her career and is excited to see the progress of services for adults with disabilities. Abby takes seriously the following words in her work and personal life:
