Abigail Fortson

Lubbock, Texas, United States

Growing up in San Antonio, Texas, Abigail decided to pursue her degree as a first generation college student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.

Prior to attending Texas Tech Abigail was involved in a collegiate cheer program and lived in Seattle, Washington. After transferring schools she became apart of the Rawls College of Business to receive a degree in Marketing where she is set to graduate in December of 2015.

Abigail will further her education this coming Fall in a study abroad program at John Cabot, an affiliate university located in Rome Italy. Upon returning from Italy, Abigail will receive her Bachelors in Marketing and transition into her career.

From her work experience with Lululemon in the Pacific North West, to being apart of the startup business Orange Theory Fitness in Lubbock; she has developed a love for fitness both in the realm of community and business. Using her education in Marketing as a platform, she has developed strong communication and interpersonal skills, and has ultimately formed great relationships in the process.

Finally, she believes that the Rawls College of Business gave her the best foundation for personal networking and hands-on learning to really further her career beyond her four years of college.

She is independent, determined, and flexible all of which she believes are important tools for truly achieving balance in whatever she sets out to do.
