Abby Queale is the Director of the Office of Innovation. She is a registered patent attorney and is published in both the legal and engineering fields.
Abby began her career in technology transfer at Florida State University (FSU) as Associate General Counsel and Senior Licensing Manager where she licensed an institutional record number of inventions and creative works to the marketplace.
Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug, Abby left FSU to lead MagCorp, a technology development partner of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, as its founding CEO and developed a new model for technology development partnerships between the public and private sectors by successfully negotiating a novel master research and intellectual property agreement with FSU.
Abby loves playing and watching sports. As a Disney Parks aficionado, when she’s not at EPCOT, she’s collecting Disneyana and helping her family and friends plan their Disney trips.
