Abby joined Performance Services in 2018 and has 15+ years of energy industry experience.  For the last five years, Abby and the Performance Assurance team have been responsible for preparing annual Measurement & Verification (M&V) reports and ensuring state regulatory compliance for Guaranteed Energy Savings Contracts (GESC) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) projects.  This effort includes establishing and maintaining critical data connections that indicate facility performance, such as equipment runtimes, outside air volume, renewable production, utility consumption, learning environment readings, system schedules, and local weather.  Annual reports are compiled with this data to paint a complete picture of operational performance, highlight project successes and uncover actionable opportunities for increased efficiency.

Before joining PSI, Abby implemented the energy efficiency (EE) incentive program on behalf of southern Indiana gas & electric utility, Vectren (now CenterPoint Energy). While in this role, she initiated and executed a campaign to bolster EE program participation among K-12 schools resulting in a nine-fold increase in natural gas savings from 2016-2017. This effort earned the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s award for Inspiring Efficiency. Prior to this function, Abby served as a Senior Sustainability Analyst at Vectren. She was responsible for preparing the Corporate Sustainability Report in compliance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, implementing a company-wide waste recycling program, and incorporating sustainability principles into supply chain practices.

Abby and her husband, Ryan, moved to the Indianapolis area from southern Indiana in 2016. In her free time, Abby is a stained-glass artist who enjoys the outdoors, world travel, history, genealogy, and arrowhead hunting.  She also enjoys spending time with their two rescue dogs, Hamlet and Bonnie.
