Abbi joined Vicenti, Lloyd & Stutzman in 2009 and was promoted to Firm Administrator in 2014. As a part of the strategic management team, Abbi works with the partners to develop and implement firm initiatives and oversees general firm operations including Human Resources, Marketing, Technology, Facilities, Training, and several internal committees. Every now and then, she organizes a flash mob to shake it up.
Prior to this role, Abbi was the firm’s first Knowledge Manager. Accounting professionals at Vicenti collectively contain volumes of technical information that make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, businesses and not-for-profit organizations across the state of California and beyond. As Knowledge Manager, she helped bridge the gap between those with the technical expertise and those without, by writing thought leadership articles for trade journals and client communiqués, and by creating curriculum for in-house training programs.
Abbi worked for Vicenti remotely from Minnesota for four years, but returned to California to take on the Firm Administrator role in 2014. She has also lived in Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Tennessee and Georgia. Prior to Vicenti, Abbi’s professional experience has been concentrated in education and professional writing. A graduate of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, Abbi taught school for six years. She wrote a column in the Glendora/San Dimas/La Verne Highlander (a suburban weekly of the San Gabriel Valley Tribune). She has published dozens of articles in trade magazines and has freelanced as a writer and book/dissertation editor for several authors/doctoral candidates in California, Texas, Tennessee, Minnesota, and New York. She has published a few short works of fiction and has completed the second draft of a novel she hopes to publish soon.
Outside of work, Abbi enjoys spending time with her husband and three teenage boys. She loves to run, read literary fiction, spend time with friends, and is an active member of her church.
