Heidi Holtz

Board Member - Friends of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo

“We found the perfect facilitator. The images Abby drew of our new Zoo vision have stayed with all of us, and the connections we made between staff and board continue to grow. Abby's wisdom, charm, and thoughtfulness took a regular old board retreat to a new level! We needed to bump up our creativity, we needed to find the fun in our work, and we needed to energize staff and board. The visual facilitation that Abby does so well was key to all of this.”

Matthew Fehling

CEO, Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest

“We recently hired Abby to facilitate and lead a half-day retreat with over 65 directors of 4 different boards (yes, you read that right). The experience was, in a word, smooth. Abby truly listened to our needs and designed a process that was not only inclusive of all attendees but also delivered a number of actionable and impactful ideas. Additionally, her communication with the internal team throughout the process was prompt and professional.”

Grace O’Sullivan

Vice President of Corporate Engagement and Strategic Partnerships

“Abby did a wonderful job conducting research with our key clients, designing a workshop, and engaging key stakeholders. She was able to inject creativity into the entire process and worked hard to ensure the workshop was fun AND productive. A winning combination.
