Meet the Team – Abby Simpson

Last month, we welcomed History graduate Abby Simpson to our UK team. With writing and technology being a passion of Abby’s, Touchdown was the obvious place to start her career within PR. 

We asked a few quick-fire questions to get to know our newest teammate a little bit better

Ice cream or cake?

Cake 100%. Nothing beats cake

Favorite book you’ve read?

Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn

Music or podcasts?

Probably music, unless it’s a true crime podcast and then it’s a tie

Why Touchdown PR?

I love writing and I love being creative, so PR sounded perfect and I’ve also always been interested in tech and gadgets, so Touchdown PR was a great mix of two of my interests

Best gift you’ve ever received?

My brother brought me a poster for Christmas which was a really niche reference to my favourite show, The Office US (for anyone who watches The Office, it was a movie poster for ‘Threat Level Midnight’)

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Friendly, creative, talkative

Do you have a hidden talent?

I am scarily good at Mario Kart

Favorite author?

When I was younger I read every Sophie Mackenzie book I could find and I still feel very nostalgic seeing her books

What is your nickname?

My friends tend to shorten my name to “abs”, but that’s about it

Greatest achievement?

Finishing my MA in the middle of a pandemic
