Meet Abbey: Project Manager, Thrifter, Lover of Theatre



We couldn’t be happier to introduce everyone to Abbey, our Project Manager and the newest member of the team. Following her early life in the theatre, Abbey worked at some of Chicago’s most respected companies, like Steppenwolf and the Second City, before joining VerdanaBold. Now, she’s helping us bring a new level of shine and drama to every presentation.

What aspect of your personality adds the most value to your work at VerdanaBold?

As a Project Manager with both a Marketing and Theatre-Artist toolbox, I know firsthand how to leverage the power of storytelling to transform an audience experience!


If you were to start a company from scratch, what values would you build it on?

Treat others with respect. Care personally about coworkers. Lead with authenticity. Approach feedback with an open mind and growth mindset.


How will you measure the success of your work at VerdanaBold?

As a Project Manager, I’m passionate about process improvement and future-proofing. That means that a successful day might include anything from getting a last-minute client request organized and out the door to building an internal process that helps the entire team to increase efficiency.


What is your favorite restaurant in Chicago?

I love all things taco! Keep an eye out for me on the Big Star patio, standing in line at Taco El Jalisciense, or just sipping a homemade strawberry margarita.


At what store would you like to max your credit card out?

I’m an avid thrifter and often visit Crossroads Trading in Lakeview to find the best pieces. Many thrifted items have become wardrobe staples for me.


What is your favorite book? What is your favorite book cover design?

My favorite book is All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. My favorite bookcover design is on The House on Falling Star Hill by Michael Molloy; I loves how the art continues into the book on each chapter header!
