ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Abby Quinn was selected as the director of Resource Management Sept 1.

Quinn is a third generation depot employee.

Both of her grandfathers worked at Anniston Army Depot, as did her mother, and her father retired from the Anniston Chemical Activity.

A graduate of Wellborn High School, she received her Bachelor of Science in accounting from Jacksonville State University in 2004, then went on to earn her master's degree in business administration in 2006.

While working toward her bachelor's degree, she was selected for a GS-4 position as an internal review auditor through the depot's cooperative education program.

That internship turned into a career and led to her becoming an accountant in DRM in 2006.

She transitioned to the Program and Budget Division in 2009, working as a program analyst.

Two years later, she accepted a position at Army Materiel Command in Huntsville as a budget analyst. She worked there until returning to Anniston in 2014 as the budget officer/division chief of the Program and Budget Division.

She served in that role until her appointment as director.

Quinn is a certified public accountant and certified defense financial manager.

The various supervisors who mentored her throughout her career gave her an appreciation for the critical role ANAD fulfills in defending our nation.

"I hope to lead with integrity and in a way that is always ethical, whether or not anyone is looking," said Quinn. "I want DRM to continue to be a trusted organization, so we are here to assist where we can."

Being firmly rooted in Anniston, her goals are to assist the depot in successful completion of its mission - ensuring the readiness of the nation's Soldiers.

"I love the depot and I love the Army and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve here," she said.
