Abbi graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in Social Work. Growing up as the daughter of the ministry founders, Joe & Toni Rose, Abbi has had the incredible opportunity to volunteer at over 100 retreats. When she was required to have an internship for college, she sought us out (commuting back and forth from Louisville to Bowling Green to make it work). When the Executive Director position became available, Abbi felt called to apply and was hired by the Board of Directors in September of 2018. She is passionate about people and has a strong desire to make sure nobody ever feels isolated and alone. Just like Barren Heights, Abbi strongly believes in making sure people feel loved, accepted, welcomed, and safe.
Outside of Barren Heights, Abbi enjoys playing any competitive sport, reading a good novel, spending time with family (especially her baby nephew), and traveling.
