Hi everyone! My name is Abby Hoffmann and I am a third (almost fourth!) year marketing student at the Fisher College of Business.
I grew up in a REALLY small town in southeastern Ohio: Logan. Ever heard of it? Most people know it as the Hocking Hills. It really is a beautiful place to see! I graduated from Logan High School in 2008 and have been loving life in Columbus, Ohio ever since! While it was definitely an adjustment moving from such a small town to a large city, I have really enjoyed my time at OSU and love attending the football games every fall! I am a member of the Undergraduate Business Women’s Association (UBWA) and I am also a member of FisherCARES, a volunteer organization here at Fisher. I love volunteering at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and being able to play with all of the dogs there! I recommend to everyone reading that if you haven’t already, you should definitely get involved somehow on campus!
Last summer, I had the opportunity to be a marketing intern at a non-profit organization in Nelsonville, Ohio, The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio. The organization is dedicated to benefiting the lives of the people who live in the Appalachian region of Ohio and aiding to help provide opportunities for the pursuit of a higher education. I absolutely loved the experience I had there and really enjoyed being able to aid in the organization’s mission to help others! This summer, I plan to do a marketing and sales internship here in Columbus. I recently completed a week of really intense training and am looking forward to seeing if a career in sales is something I am interested in pursuing after I graduate from college next June.
Good luck to everyone on Finals! I’m really excited to share the experience I will have this summer with all of you!
