Abby Peterson

Director of Corporate Programs, The COMMIT Foundation

Strategic communicator, dedicated to enhancing organizational effectiveness with an established track record managing and building programs and influential campaigns from the ground-up. Proven servant-leader versed in analyzing organizational structure and behavior to design and implement better outcomes in seasons of major organizational change.

After managing the rigorous demands of crisis communications, media relations and community outreach for a large regional federal installation, I’ve grown as an adaptable collaborator with finely tuned forecasting capability. During major merges within the Marine Corps, I developed strategic implementation plans to help my unit see the big picture while simultaneously identifying key change impacts at a granular level. Coordinating multimedia productions for both internal and external communications was paramount to our success.

By developing impactful communication campaigns, and segmenting audiences for maximum influence, mobilizing new and growing programs has been my strength.

I believe building relationships and coalitions is the key enabler to positive change in any organization.
