Gabby Paterson is a PHS senior who is a recovering caffeine addict and probably has bigger shoulders than you and your dad. If you ever need to find her, she will most likely be at the pool, either swimming or lifeguarding. She is incredibly clumsy and is referred to as a bull in a china closet by her entire family. 

Gabby has a massive ego and thinks she’s way too good at swimming and will most likely flex on you if she's given the chance. Her personality traits consist of always being right and occasionally degrading your writing skills. If you ever ask her to edit your paper, be prepared to cry yourself to sleep that night. 

“Gabby and I go way back,” junior Jimmy Dees said. “All the way back to my freshman year. Gabby is an amazing person until you write a stat chat for the first time of course. If you ever think you are right, Gabby will assure you that you are most definitely wrong.”
