ELLO DARLINGS! My name is Abbie! First things first, I want to say how over-the-moon excited I am to be a part of the SWS Team. What a blessing it is to contribute to the fun-loving, faith-filled, cheerful vibes SWS exhibits!

Born and raised in the land of 10,000 lakes, I like to think of myself as a rough-around-the-edges kinda girl with a heart sweeter than a Georgia peach. I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty, but at the end of the day I appreciate a fresh manicure. I love spending time at my cabin, where you can find me in sweatpants, an oversize sweatshirt, not an ounce of make-up, and a messy bun on the top of my head. What more could a girl ask for, right? Well, on second thought, a girl like myself could ask for a lot; I’m thinking a shopping spree at Lululemon, a chic pair of oversize Dior sunglasses, a patent leather Celine tote, and oh so much more. 

Throughout my childhood, I was very active. If I wasn't on the soccer field, I was skating with the boys or cheering on the Minnesota Wild with my dad. My passion for sports is ultimately what encouraged me to become the health and fitness enthusiast that I am. I will be the first to admit that I am a fitness junkie and nutrition nut, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am a #musclesandmascara kinda girl who's not afraid to drop down and give you 20. Testing my own strength, whether mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual is what inspires me day in and day out. (Cue inner Abbie voice) Enough rambling already, let’s get to the fun stuff!


I recently graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications & Journalism. AKA, writing is my jam!

I am a sucker for anything sweet…which basically consists of chocolate, chocolate, peanut butter, chocolate, butterscotch, toffee, ohh and did I mention chocolate? While my inner nutrition nut knows only dark chocolate is healthy (in moderation), I often treat myself to Quest Bars or Arctic Zero ice cream to fulfill such nightly cravings.

Skinny Jeans and Chunky wedges. Ladies, if you haven’t already, puh-lease, do yourself a favor and go splurge on a great pair of denim and cute nude wedges. I promise you cannot go wrong with these pieces in your wardrobe!

Tennis shoes, diamond stud earrings (Target style), my family and my dog.

Being the simple girl that I am, I would have to say a casual dinner and drinks, followed by a cozy night by the bonfire and good conversation. S’mores included, obvi.

I adore adventuring to new places in the Twin Cities! The North Loop is always a must, followed by The West End, Saint Anthony Main, Northeast Minneapolis, Downtown Stillwater, and Lake Calhoun. Some of my go-to spots include – Loring Kitchen Bar, Urban Eatery, Spoon and Stable, and for special occasions, Café Bar Lurcat.

I think I’ve covered most of my personality in a nutshell, so with that said– Cheers to new beginnings and joining the beautiful bombshells of SWS!

Hugs + Kisses,

Abbie ;)
