Abby began her career at the Minnesota Department of Commerce where she implemented local government energy efficiency programs, and served as staff representative to the Clean Energy Resource Teams and to GreenStep. A move to CR Planning, a small urban planning firm that specialized in sustainability and energy, led to her current position at the Great Plains Institute, where Abby continues her work with GreenStep, and with communities throughout the Midwest, focusing on solar energy opportunities and community resiliency. Abby received a Master's of Urban and Regional Planning from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota and a B.S. in Political Science from the University of Oregon.
