Abby has always been a people person who enjoys bringing groups together, coordinating engaging events, and connecting people to the right resources that help them grow. Since joining the team at MANTEC, a non-profit organization serving small- and medium-sized manufacturing companies in South Central PA, she’s had countless opportunities to use those skills and passions to help manufacturers and their people achieve excellence.

A few months into her time at MANTEC, Abby discovered a need amongst manufacturing companies and founded the Young Manufacturers Network in February of 2024, a group dedicated to upskilling and retaining young talent in the manufacturing industry. As President of YMN, Abby oversees a team of eight Advisory Board members who help create events, content, and other opportunities to develop, mentor, and support the next generation of manufacturing.

When she’s not spending time listening to manufacturers and helping them grow, you can find Abby leading the LCBC York Young Adult group, farming on her family’s Scottish Highland Cattle farm, and spending time being active in nature by kayaking, hiking, and rock climbing.
