Abby LeGrand

Title: Senior Wish Specialist


Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: I taught English for 3 years here in Las Vegas. I taught 7th grade for 2 years at R.O. Gibson Middle School, and then 9th/10th grade for 1 year at Equipo Academy.

Education: I received my Bachelor of Arts in English from Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes!), and then my Master of Education, Curriculum and Instruction from University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

About me: I was born and raised in Oklahoma, and moved out to Las Vegas with Teach for America. Although I miss my family, I love the excitement Vegas brings to my life. I enjoy cooking, reading, and spending nights in with good friends and my pup, Charlie.

My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: I love seeing the results of wishes and how much joy they bring to Wish Kids and their families. It’s amazing to see so many people from the community come together to make the best possible wish experience for a child.

My wish would be: To flip a house with Joanna and Chip!

My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops? ”
