Abby graduated from Duke University in 2006, where she studied Political Science and International Comparative Studies. During college, she conducted independent research while living abroad in Kenya and India, interviewing various legal, social and political figures on the subject of Muslim Law and the implications of its inclusion in the legal system of both countries. After graduation, having heard about microfinance through her studies and travels, Abby worked as an intern at the Center for Empowerment and Economic Development, a domestic microfinance institution in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She then worked as a Compensation Consultant at Watson Wyatt in New York, where she helped design a global training program to teach associates how to analyze industries, businesses, and set performance metrics. Abby speaks conversational French and is looking forward to furthering her bilingual abilities and returning to the field of microfinance as a Kiva Fellow in Togo.
