There’s a reason we say TEAM instead of staff.


Abby Akin
Media Buyer


Abby represents the heart and soul of ADsmith. She is enormously dedicated to not-for-profits, often sacrificing her time and resources to help others. When she isn’t busy supporting the various non-profits with which ADsmith is involved, Abby applies her analytical skills to the Media Department, where she audits every single client invoice to ensure what was ordered was delivered. She provides clients with the invaluable post analysis of media schedules to hold stations and vendors accountable to our clients.

Abby has a degree in Advertising and a degree in Public Relations from Drury University. Prior to joining ADsmith, she worked for an insurance marketing company. She loves learning new things about the industry and ADsmith’s clients, and is always looking for ways we can be better stewards of their business.
