Her credentials and high standing in the instruction community earned her a spot among the top 40 instructors under the age of 40 for eight consecutive years.

Abby and her husband, Greg, have two sons, Brent and Cole, as well as a golden retriever, Merritt.
The core of my teaching philosophy is to grow the game of golf through everyone I work with. It is imperative to teach the game in each student’s individual learning style. Continuous growth of my personal methodology is always at the forefront. We as PGA/LPGA Professionals must never forget we are role models on and off the lesson tee.
