Abbey is a 3L in the Harvard-Berkeley Law School exchange program, and is the Secretary of the Board of Law Students of Reproductive Justice. She is president emeritus of Harvard's LSRJ chapter and was an editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender. Abbey recently finished a summer with the National Domestic Workers' Alliance working to pass state and local workers' rights legislation, as well as bring a gender angle to the immigration debate. She graduated in 2009 from George Washington University where she ran the Planned Parenthood-Vox campus chapter and worked with Advocates for Youth on sexual and reproductive health issues. Between college and law school, Abbey worked for the Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division and served as a volunteer case manager for the DC Abortion Fund.
