Abbott is Timpview’s HOSA advisor who nominated Clark for the Presidential Scholar program. She is a Registered Nurse (RN), a health science teacher and a mother. “I am happy for the opportunities I have to teach, to be involved with HOSA, to be a registered nurse, and to be a mom. I love what I do … and consider myself to be very blessed, indeed,” Abbott says on Timpview’s website.
