Abby grew up in a very musical family, practically singing before she could speak. Her first performance venue was the brick "stage" in front of her fireplace where she gave memorable renditions of "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and "Hello Dolly". In high school, she was very involved in the band as a flute and piccolo player, but her first love was always the theatrical stage. After receiving a BA in Vocal Performance from Harding University, she returned to her hometown of Houston, TX where she was a company member at the A.D. Players Theater for three years. She then continued her education at Oklahoma City University, where she received her MM in Music Theatre. Upon completion of graduate school, she migrated north and became a New Yorker. Since moving to the city, Abby has built a thriving performance career. She has toured nationally, performed in theater festivals, created and performed two cabaret shows, performed with several regional theaters, debuted Off-Broadway and appeared on television on Netflix, ABC and TBS. In 2017, Abby made her Broadway debut originating the role of Mrs. Puff in SpongeBob SquarePants at the Palace Theater. SpongeBob SquarePants was the most-nominated new musical of 2018 and won several awards, including Best New Musical (Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle) and Best Set Design of a Musical (Tony Award).
In 2014, Abby became a certified Music Together teacher and enjoys bringing music to the families of New York City.
In her free time, Abby likes to play word games, kiss babies' cheeks, bake cookies, and love on her amazing friends. She gives abundant thanks to her incredible family and friends for their unending support and love.
