Abbey is arguably the most fashion forward at the Wild Tomato. This fact aligns well with her dream job of being a Buyer in the fashion industry.
“A buyer is in charge of purchasing all the clothes for each season,” said Abbey, who looks at Nordstroms as the ultimate goal.
Until then, Abbey is happy to be in a family with seven siblings who just moved up to Door County from the Chicago suburbs. For Abbey, being around the water is the biggest treat.
“I like being on the water and around all the nature in Door County,” she said. “The people up here are so diverse but they all seem to enjoy everything the county has to offer.”
She feels the same way about her Wild Tomato staff, who are the main reason she is coming back for her second year.
“All the employees are wonderful. They are so kind and have so much energy that it’s impossible not to be excited about coming in to work. You always know there is going to be someone else working with you that will make you smile.”
