Mary Margaret Yancey is an Analyst working with AHI in the Boston office. Her work stems from the foundational belief that housing holds psychological, social, and economic reverence at the individual, organizational, and societal level – therefore, affordable, quality housing is of vital importance for all.
Since coming to AHI in September 2019, Mary Margaret’s current work portfolio has predominantly been centered around PPP-financed housing development projects in Senegal and Fiji. In the United States, she has taken the reigns on developing an impact profile for Bringing School Home, an educational program for children and families living in Boulder Housing Partners in Colorado.
Mary Margaret recently graduated from Wheaton College in Massachusetts, USA in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Business & Management. Throughout her undergraduate career, Mary Margaret worked in a variety of individual and team-based research contexts, her most notable projects including: a resident needs assessment with a Massachusetts Housing Authority, an independent multi-city research study conducted in Ahmedabad, India, São Paulo, Brazil, and Cape Town, South Africa, and an independent qualitative sociology thesis.
As an Analyst, Mary Margaret brings enthusiasm and rigor to information synthesis and analysis. Through her work, she hopes to assist in bridging the gaps between housing research, consulting, and implementation. She speaks English natively and Spanish proficiently, and when she is not supporting AHI’s housing consulting and research practice, she can be found rock climbing or singing in a vocal group.
