Abby Volin is an attorney who early on in her career learned the critical value of finding mutually beneficial resolutions for all stakeholders, especially when involved in an adversarial or delicate situation. Her passion for working with animals and creating community started at an early age and has been infused in nearly all her professional and volunteer work – from organizing potluck dinners to serving as a volunteer coordinator at several non-profits to running a shelter facility for homeless cats.
Most recently, Abby served as the public policy manager for the HSUS, where she focused on policies and programs that impact housing for people and pets in general, and in particular as they pertain to the Fair Housing Act. Prior to joining the HSUS, Abby worked as a litigator and served as a staff member at a rescue group in her spare time.
Abby uses her advocacy and creative problem solving skills to facilitate positive outcomes and supportive environments for people and pets alike. She has extensive experience with policy analysis and advocacy, developing and launching programs, forging strategic partnerships, and employing innovative solutions to achieve goals and mutually beneficial results.
Abby holds a JD from Loyola University Chicago and a BA in quantitative economics and public health from Tufts University as well as a certificate in mediation from The Center for Dispute Resolution located in Washington, D.C.
