Abigail earned her Bachelor’s in Environmental Science from Unity College. Before beginning the Master’s program, she conducted research regarding the impact of community involvement in the success of wind power acceptance.

Her Master’s thesis consists of a review of coupled social-ecological systems literature and an analysis of linkages between pro-social and pro-environmental behavior.
