Abby Herschman graduated from the University of South Carolina in December 2018. She was a Mechanical Engineering Major, Pre-Med, and Dance Minor during her time as an undergraduate student. Born and raised in Columbia, Maryland, Abby grew up as a competitive gymnast and late in high school transitioned to dance. Abby has always had an interest in engineering and medicine, which lead to founding Hands On Prosthetic Engineering. Abby is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of H.O.P.E. Seeing the reaction on client’s faces when they receive their prosthesis is the best part of H.O.P.E. for her. Abby started H.O.P.E. to allow children to gain confidence and provide devices to children and veterans who would otherwise not have a device. Her vision for the future is that H.O.P.E. will continue to grow and one day help children across the nation.
