Ms. Abentroth’s great-great grandfather was the first County Commissioner from Bingham Township, and Ms. Abentroth hopes to follow in his civil-service footsteps. Ms. Abentroth has dedicated her life in service to her country, first in the United States Marine Corps, and then as a United States government contractor.

Ms. Abentroth is a survivor of two terrorist attacks in her seven years of service in Iraq and Afghanistan: the first at Camp Bastion by the Taliban in 2012, and the second at Bagram Airfield in 2016. As in the In-Country Contract Manager for the Identity Intelligence Program in Afghanistan, Ms. Abentroth was able to build a solid rapport with both clients and government officials.
