Abbey is joining the TSS Graduate Program with experience in habitat restoration, outdoor education, and volunteer management. She is originally from Chicago and graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2019 with a B.S. in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences and a concentration in Restoration Ecology. During her time at University of Illinois, she spent three summers working for the John G.
