In 2000, Abby was cast as Annie by lyricist Martin Charnin for the show's national tour revival, but was unable to accept the role. After playing Annie for many years, it was only natural that she would have Miss Hannigan on her "bucket list". And she checked that off her list in ITC's Annie Jr. last October.

In 2007, Abby attended the Pennsylvania Governor's soprano classical vocalists selected for the five-week residential program at Mercyhurst College. There she studied classical voice with Ms. Diana Walters. More recently, Abby has sung with David Hayes' Philadelphia Singers, the official chorus of the Philadelphia Orchestra. During the summer of 2010, she studied voice under the direction of Dr. Jeeyoung Park at Temple University. Abby completed her most recent vocal studies with Opera Master's student, Ms Ester Oh, at Temple University.

During the day, Abby is the CEO and Chief Consultant of her company, Bright Ideas Small Business Solutions. You can also find her performing on the stage with local theater groups in the Marco Island and Naples areas, and volunteering as a Board Member with the local no-kill rescue. For the Love of Cats.
