Abbie Rice

Born and raised in Memphis, Abbie moved to Nashville fresh out of college. She landed a job in sales for a large computer company where she eventually met her husband Josh. They spent years enjoying all the city had to offer: live music, festivals, and late nights on Broadway. They decided to settle down in Inglewood and welcomed their daughter Lucy — a hard headed, opinionated, and free spirited 3 year old. Abbie is currently co-owner with her husband Josh of a kickboxing gym in Hendersonville. She runs the business operations and trains members in American Kickboxing. When not training, chasing their toddler, or keeping the day-to-day life together, she enjoys cooking, knitting, writing, and studying about nutrition.
