Prior to founding Global Citizen Year, Abby spent more than a decade as an educator and entrepreneur in communities across the U.S. and around the world. One of her most notable achievements was designing an initiative that empowers youth to address global poverty, a model which has now become a flagship program of Mercy Corps.

For her achievements as a social entrepreneur, she has been recognized as an Ashoka Fellow, a Draper Richards Kaplan Entrepreneur, a Mind Trust Fellow, and a Harvard Social Enterprise Fellow.
