Abby C. l Youth Development Manager

Abby worked at the Kroc in college for 3 years, while studying to get my degree in Secondary Education with a concentration in Youth & Training. She has worked at a variety of different non-profits between her times of service at the Kroc. In Abby’s free time, she loves exercising and spending time with her pets. Abby is most looking forward to forming relationships with the kids, and working with some of the staff that were previous youth members. A fun fact about Abby, her favorite movie is Ratatouille!
