Abby started her career in marketing at a small property services business in Muskoka for a year and moved on shortly after to the GoodLife Fitness corporate marketing department for just under two years.
While the marketing world was fun, she felt something was missing. After pursuing a meeting at rock-it (ed note: it took many emails and superb follow up!), she took a leap of faith and accepted an offer for an intensive four-month internship to learn PR. In turn, Abby was offered a full time job with rock-it and has been smiling ever since (ed note: and so have we).
Abby spent a year in Taiwan teaching English to kids and has travelled to Japan, France, Spain, Thailand and more. She loves lakes, the beach, fashion, books, good music and dinner parties with wine and friends. She is a pro at Ultimate Frisbee and plays once a week. Abby studied English & Criminology at the University of Toronto.
How long have you been part of the team?
Ideal vacation spot?
The Amalfi Coast in Italy. I want to eat pasta and drink wine for, like, days.
What can’t you leave the house without?
Brushing my teeth.
Best gift you’ve ever received?
My sparkly, gorgeous engagement ring. The fiancé that came with it is pretty good, too.
How do you like to relax?
Reading a great book. I love to cook. And watch TV on Slice. Drinks and dinner with friends.
Best part about being a publicist?
The days with like-minded people who are interested in the same things that I am. Always knowing what’s going on in my city. I love events and meeting creative, successful people. Also, spending my days writing.
