Abigail Coughlin, BS

Senior Guide

Abigail Coughlin’s related experience prior to starting at Open Sky includes studying psychology, volunteering for an organization in Alabama that provides services to victims of sexual violence, working as a camp counselor in North Carolina, and extensive experience traveling and backpacking.  

Abigail was attracted to wilderness therapy because of how strongly it aligns with her values. She was attracted to Open Sky specifically for its holistic, family-centered approach as well as the beautiful location. Additionally, Abigail once crossed paths with a former student whose life had completely changed because of Open Sky, and the experience left her feeling inspired to start working as a field guide.  

What Abigail values most about her role as a field guide is the ability to connect through vulnerability, compassion, laughter, and communication. Her strengths within a guide team include her passion for people to discover their purpose and healing. Her other strengths include being a quick learner and arriving with positivity, grit, and confidence.  

During her time off, Abigail can be found doing anything and everything! She is usually surrounded by people who also love life and are enthused about spending their days and nights outdoors. She loves learning new hobbies like playing guitar, rock climbing, highlining, and more. A fun fact about Abigail is that she can lick her elbow!
