Abbey is a native of Greenville, SC. She is a graduate of Wade Hampton High School and North Greenville University. During her time at North Greenville, she studied Health Science with a concentration in Exercise Science. In 2021 she had the opportunity to be a summer guide with G.O.A.T. This opportunity grew her love for working with students in the outdoors. Since then she has had the opportunity to assist in coaching a climbing team in Greenville and volunteer with Eleos. Abbey enjoys climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and running. Abbey’s favorite places to climb outdoors include the Red River Gorge in Kentucky and Hidden Valley in Virginia. One of Abbey’s favorite things in life is learning new outdoor skills with friends and getting to educate others around her so they can also enjoy new experiences in the outdoors.
