About her time at the U and how her major benefitted her, Abbi stated:
"I was undecided when I first came to the U of U of what exactly I wanted to do. After talking with Jenny we decided that FCS was the right department fit for what I strived to do. Before, finding this great fit I struggled with wanting to go to classes or even wanting to complete college. After starting in this major and especially taking Sonia Solari’s Family Violence class I realized how strong of a passion I had for wanting to advocate for individuals rights. It is why I chose to become an advocate for long-term care residents and I am very grateful to have had the experience of a great education at the University of Utah."
