New Programming for people on the Autism Spectrum/Neurodiversity

Abby Waldrop, RN, BSN

Nurse Manager

Abby is no stranger to CooperRiis. While in college studying nursing, she worked for us with the housekeeping crew, kitchen dish room, medication assistant, and House Advisor with The Community Program.

My goal for every resident is to assist and educate them about their treatment options for their physical and mental health, and for them to gain knowledge about their medications and supplements, why they are prescribed and their benefits and possible side effects.

Abby received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of South Carolina Upstate Campus and worked previously at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte on their Cardiac Floor.

Growing up in Polk County, Abby now lives about 15 minutes from CooperRiis on “my little piece of country paradise” with her family.
