Miss Abel


I am a proud Ernest Hemingway Elementary School alumni and was born and raised here in Ketchum, Idaho. I earned both my Bachelor and Master degrees at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California. My major was European Studies with an emphasis on Spanish and a minor in French. My junior year I studied the first semenster in Madrid, Spain and the second semester in Paris, France. Before returnig to LMU to earn my Masters in Secondary Education, I had fantastic enriching vocational experiences in varied industries such as advertising sales and marketing in international tourism.

I lived, and worked in Los Angeles, California for over ten years before moving to Villeneuve-les-Avignon, France.  I returned to the our valley after liivng in the South of France for 17 years, where I raised my three boys who are currently bilingual Huskies. We adore our Jack Russell, Nala, who we brought back from France with us. I cherish the time  I spend with my three boys.  My passions are travelling, running, playing tennis, music, dancing, and photography.
