“Don’t let anyone get in the way of living your dream. If you hear you can’t do it and you know you can, don’t give up.”
Abby grew up in Pipestone, MN and studied at Minnesota State University – Mankato. She has been in the banking industry for nearly a decade.
After coming to work for First National, she quickly realized how customers and employees were treated – like family, not a number. “I love the values we represent and the family-feel of this organization.”
Due to the volunteer opportunities that come with working at the Bank, Abby is able to serve as a mentor with LSS. “I do it for the look on the kids’ faces when you walk in the door. You know you are helping them in more ways than you can imagine.”
She is supported by her boyfriend, Allen, but her true loves are shoes and makeup!
Outside of work, Abby likes to travel, cook, bake, and crochet. “My great-grandma used to crochet every grandchild a blanket; I wanted to keep that tradition alive.”
