All About Me, Abbi! 💛
My name is Abbigail Crawford but my friends call me Abbi! Originally, I’m from a small town north of Columbus called New Bloomington. I attended Bowling Green State University, where I studied Visual Communication Technology with a focus in graphic design and photography (this was after I changed my major 4 times freshman year)! I joined a sorority, Delta Zeta, where I met some of the most amazing people that are still in my life today including my best friend, Tori, my “Little” Alicia, and my “G-Little”, Chloe! Joining Delta Zeta also lead me to meet my now-husband, Jeffrey Crawford and the adoption of our first pug, Vader.
After graduation, my husband started his career in sales & marketing determined to work his way up to owning his own business. His manager at the time needed an HR Administrator, so I jumped into the sales & marketing field as well. Over the next 2.5 years, my husband and I got married, we adopted our second pug, Leia, and he opened his own business, Leomhann Enterprises! As soon as he hit this milestone, I jumped behind the scenes to create his logo and website. One of the first decisions Jeffrey made as a business owner was to hire Christina England aka Luna Brand Management to manage his social media! During the first call between the three of us, Christina was telling us about herself when she mentioned she was a Delta Zeta throughout college. Jeffrey and I were both like NO WAY and instantly, we connected.
About a year later in early 2018, there was a part-time opening at Luna, and I accepted it without hesitation, paving the way for my dream job as a Digital Content Manager! When I first joined the team, Luna was just starting to really expand nationally, so it was really incredible to learn first hand how much dedication and passion went behind the brands we were building.
During the next year, I learned so much about social media management, including the total creation of an online presence from beginning to end, how to increase my design skills, how to have and maintain a remote business professional relationship with clients, and how great it feels to have a career you’re passionate about WITH people who are just as spirited in the day-to-day work as you are! Working from home was one of my biggest challenges to overcome, but the respect I have for my boss, mixed with the passion I have for the work, helps motivate me to stay focused and bring out that girl boss hustle!
I mentioned I have the best team anyone could ever work with and the start of this year helped exemplify that. On January 24, 2019, I gave birth to my daughter, Haven Grace Crawford! I received so much love from each and every one of my colleagues; I was literally over the moon! I was able to take a month off for maternity leave and the team was willing to take on a little extra work to give me 4 full weeks of uninterrupted cuddle time with my little mama.
Working with Luna Brand Management has allowed me to express myself creatively and challenge myself in ways that help me develop both personally and professionally! I’ve gotten out of my comfort zone trying new aspects of graphic design I never thought would cross my path. Every day, I’m learning new ways to improve the online presence of our clients, receiving inspiration from a fellow team member on a new design, and increasing my vocabulary and writing skills! I have amazing role models in our company to thank for all of this. I’m more appreciative to be a part of this family more than I can say in words! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Luna Brand Management! Until then, you can catch Haven & I on the Luna Instagram story sharing what projects we’re working on that day!
