Abby was born and raised in Kirksville, Missouri and has one brother, Ira. She was a cheerleader, a dancer, and served on student council in high school. As a teenager she worked in a hair salon as a receptionist, at a gas station, and at a snack bar at the local golf course. She attended Central Methodist College having aspirations of becoming a lawyer but changed that to education. She graduated from CMC in December of 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and political science. She holds two teaching certificates in high school social studies and elementary education, and is also a certified preschool director. During college she met Morgan who played football and Abby cheered him on.
Abby got married to Morgan three weeks after graduation and has been married for seven years. Morgan is an assistant parts manager for Marine Max and grew up in Four Seasons. Abby and Morgan have two daughters, Scout and Molly. The Mayer’s spent a couple of years living in St. Louis and have now made the lake their home.
When Abby is not running after her children, she enjoys traveling, reading and watching movies. In her spare time, she crochets blankets for the Layne Grace Project that delivers care packages to hospitals for families of still born babies.
Abby says that Calo is the place for me. I have never been so happy in my life knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of our kids.
