About Abbie
As an Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist of 16 years, I have mastered the art of telling other people's stories. In fact, I thrive in this space - sharing important information in a creative, visual format. While I love my job as a trend and celebrity correspondent at ABC News' Good Morning America and Nightline, I've always had to answer to a long line of bosses. After discovering live-streaming online, I now hold the power of a news network in the palm of my hand - from my iPhone. LIVE, UNFILTERED & UNEDITED - I am creating a positive space for families to enjoy my videos, all while maintaining complete creative control over my own content.

Best advice you've ever been given

My dad told once told me it's better to love and get your heart broken, than to never love again. I followed his advice, and eventually married the love of my life. This advice transcends into different parts of my life - beyond love. It's about going for it. I will never regret trying. But I would regret allowing my dreams to pass me by.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I love creating. Whether it's in the kitchen or projects around the house - I like getting my hands dirty! I love spending time with my children and husband. I am also a spokesperson for a non-profit group - Operation Showers of Appreciation. It's an organization that throws baby showers for military moms. Recently, they launched a new program called "Unspoken Heroes," where they will send pamper packages to military spouses or caretakers. As a spokesperson, I am hoping to help them grow this program.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Death. Never used to fear it, but now that I have children, it's probably the thing that scares me most.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Launching. :) In all seriousness, soon I will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for my first production run. Running a successful campaign would be a game-changer for the company. I am hoping parents/moms/kids love my product and I can build a community of people who embrace SOCKABU!

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Great question! Probably three things...
1. Trust your gut.
2. Don't force things.
3. Enjoy the ride.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I would love to be part of a community of women and mothers who truly know what it's like trying to juggle your home life and your work life. For most of my career, I never asked for help. I thought it was a sign of weakness. Now, I see it as a strength. I also love mentoring others and I have a lot to offer from a media/marketing perspective.
