Abbie Schmitt

Abbie is our new aspiring Title Agent. She is originally from St. Cloud Minnesota but later moved to Utah where she fell in love with the outdoors and found a passion for small animal medicine. After some time out West, she and her fiancé decided it was time to move home to be closer to family and find a new passion in life. This led them to Glenwood where they live now with their 4 fur babies. Abbie enjoys spending time outside on a nice day, gardening, playing with her dogs, and spending time with family and friends.
