Supporting comments: "Whatever Abby does, she does it with enthusiasm and does her best to keep an upbeat attitude and to be a positive influence upon those around her. At QUEST, designed to help sophomores reflect on what they want not only their life at Denison to be like, but their life after Denison as well, Abby was a true organizer and leader. Her skills as a low/high ropes initiative leader make her keenly aware of group dynamics and the lessons learned through the process of group decision-making. She applies these skills and experience to the larger arena of her activity on campus, whether it is in her work with Career Services or as a Denison Outdoor Orientation leader. Abby leads with excellent questions and instinctive timing about what will provoke the most transformative discoveries within the individual and the group. It is a rare gift."
