When asked the question, “Why Team IMPACT?” Abby said:
Growing up playing sports a kid, and previously being a student athlete, sports have taught me so many life lessons and given me long lasting relationships. I have been able to have amazing support systems through sports, which every child should be able to experience. With my love of sports and experience working with children, I felt like Team IMPACT was something amazing that I wanted to be a part of!  I am so excited to be here and help make a difference for not only the children and families, but the student athletes as well!
