As an undergraduate at Pitzer College in the early '70s, Nancy Abell did not plan on going to law school. After graduating first in her class with a B.A. in Psychology in 1972, she began working for the City of Los Angeles Personnel Department, where she remained for four and a half years. During that time, she was a member of Mayor Tom Bradley's Affirmative Action Task Force and Advisory Committee on the Status of Women. And for her last two and a half years at the department, she served as Supervisor for the City of Los Angeles' Affirmative Action Unit. Abell said the work she performed while in that position ''cultivated [her] interest in employment law.''
