Meet Abby Grace

Want to know more about Abby Grace? Check out her interview below!


Q: What is your favorite part about being a Skelton Orthodontics SmileStar?

A: I love being a Smile Star because to me attitude is
everything and having a smile on your face, a smile you’re confident in can completely
turn your life around.

Q: What is your favorite place to go in Fort Payne and why?

A: The Spot. Even though I’m not a coffee junkie or anything
I absolutely love the atmosphere of that place. It’s the perfect spot to just
curl up with a book, a warm drink and some great friends.

Q: What did you enjoy about your orthodontic treatment at Skelton Orthodontics?

A: Most definitely the staff! I had my braces for 3 years
and I never once had a bad experience at Skelton. Everyone who works there is
always so nice and friendly!

Q: What do you like to do on the weekends?

A: On the weekends I’m often cheering on the Sylvania Rams, spending time with the people I love and hopefully finding a little time to shop in between.

Q: Tell us three fun facts about you!

A: 1) This year I was Sylvania’s sophomore homecoming attendant 2) I have zero stage freight. Some of my favorite things are singing/talking at church, doing theatre at NACC or pageants (really just being on stage!)  3) My biggest goal in life is for people to see Jesus through me.

Q: Is there a volunteer/community event you enjoy working with or attending?

A: At my church we have a Charlotte’s Shoe Box Ministry and
in the months before Christmas a lot of time and energy go into those 1200
boxes, but just knowing that it will make a difference in a child’s life makes
it worth it!

Q: What color do you feel best describes you and why?

A: Yellow! I believe in the importance of having a positive,
bubbly attitude, and always remembering to smile no matter the circumstances.
And nothing says bright, happy yellow quite like the joy that comes from Jesus.

Q: If you had to choose one song to be your “walk out song” and play every time you walk into a room, what would it be and why?

A: Sugar, Sugar but the Archies – I’d choose that song because it’s simply a feel-good song, one that you’re not too mad about if it gets stuck in your head.
