Abby Wright

Abby joined CEDA in September 2018. She holds a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in English (Concentration in Writing) and Psychology from Metropolitan State University of Denver. Selected by the Provost, Abby authored and delivered the keynote commencement speech.

Prior to joining CEDA, for over a decade, she wrote for a monthly magazine emphasizing arts, culture, and community in Brighton, CO. For five of those years, she also performed public outreach and education, biological monitoring, historic preservation, and administrative duties at a National Wildlife Refuge in Commerce City, CO. Most recently, she has worked in retail Specialty Sales.

Abby’s lifelong passion for writing, fondness of novelty, and work in academia and science fuel her attention to detail and bold writing voice in rural community grant-writing. As part of CEDA, she has also assisted regularly with economic development in the Cities of Stewartville, Zumbrota, and Mantorville.
