Abbey Jessee is the Development Intern at TFF this year.  This is her second summer interning and she is very excited to be back again.  She attended Radford University and graduated in May with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Sports Administration.  One of Abbey’s favorite times in college was when she had the opportunity to intern with the Radford Athletic Department as a Sports Marketing Intern.  During this internship she worked with multiple sports teams doing advertising and promoting sporting events on and off campus as well promotions and student involvement during game time. 

After, she graduated college she decided that while still looking for a job it would be beneficial to have another internship under her belt in order to gain a little more experience.  Coming back to The Family Foundation she was excited to learn more about fundraising and all of the efforts that go into garnering donors.  After this internship she would like to get a job doing event planning for corporations.

Her favorite thing to do is go to Virginia Tech football games with her family.  This has been a tradition that has been going on even before she was born and she attended her first football game at 4 months old and has only missed a couple home games.  Her favorite game that she has been to so far was when Virginia Tech played Ohio State at OSU and Virginia Tech won the game!  The atmosphere was by far the craziest she has ever seen it and OSU was one of her favorite stadiums that she has been to.  Her favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama, but Frozen does come in as a close second.  A fun fact about Abbey is that she has broken her arms 5 times and her foot once.  Although it has been a little over a year since she’s been clumsy and broken anything and her family is hoping that the streak continues! 

Abbey is excited to see what God’s plan is for her after the internship!
