She worked in commercial real estate for more than 30 years, in fact, almost half of those years with Vance Fulkerson. Abbey is a licensed real estate agent skilled in negotiation, contracts, lease administration, and customer service. She joined the EBS team in late 2019 to have the pleasure of working once again with the Fulkerson family. Who could have predicted a career in commercial real estate would lead to the regulated medical waste industry? Abbey enjoys reading for pleasure, cooking, gardening, college football (WDE!), pets and every Hallmark movie ever produced (forcing the husband to his mancave). She has three grown, married children and four precious grandchildren so far. On the weekends, you will find Abbey taking her homebound neighbors grocery shopping, delivering homemade meals, and feeding feral cat colonies. Abbey is looking forward to finding the perfect spot on an Alabama lake property for retirement years.
