Abbe has been pod’s office manager and MS Excel and Access consultant since 2010. Previous to joining pod, she provided her database and reporting expertise to Loreal’s luxury product division where the perks were better, but where high heels were preferred over biking cleats.
In addition to creating pivot tables and joins in Excel and Access, Abbe is fluent in HTML, CSS, WordPress, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguse, German, and a little SQL. She has a BA/MA in Spanish language and literature and linguistics from Boston University and an MA in Hispanic literature from Brown University which explains her intense language fluency.
Abbe spends her free time training for half marathons, singing in the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, the Boston Pops, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and chauffeuring her teenage son to music lessons and sports activities. She’s a self-proclaimed rabid hockey mom and Sox fan which explains her intense superstitions and rituals related to amateur and professional sporting events. Her zeal for full contact sports also makes her great at collections.
