Denna Abbott, LPN

Although born in Chicago, Illinois, Denna Abbott has spent most of her life living
in Amory, Mississippi. Within the confines of quaint, southern life, she met Michail Abbott, her
husband of more than 30 years, and had three children: Brandon Abbott (27 years old), Sarah Abbott (23
years old), and Kade Abbott (19 years old). Mrs. Abbott’s passions include spending quality
time with family, serving at her local church as a Sunday School teacher, and working in her
vegetable garden.

Active within various branches of nursing since 1985, Mrs. Abbott’s caregiving
philosophies have evolved from her educational endeavors and practical field experiences. As a
direct result, Mrs. Abbott’s approach to nursing has been to couple didactic methods learned
with invaluable field experience gained, all while conveying solicitude and compassion.
Arriving at Amory Surgery Clinic in 2015, Mrs. Abbott has worked diligently to
uphold the motto, “Whatever it takes to make it great.” To Mrs. Abbott, the process has been
absolutely enjoyable due to the hometown atmosphere of the clinic, the amazing staff at the
clinic, and the familiar family of amazing patients.
