Early life and education
Almy grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She had polio as a child and walked with crutches throughout her life. In 1905 she graduated from Radcliffe College. She worked as a teacher before developing an interest in architecture. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1919 after three years of study. Prior to her education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Almy designed a summer home for her family on Cape Cod. 
Almy worked as a drafter at a London based architectural firm called Collcut and Hamp, for two years. In the 1920s she became a drafter for the Boston firm owned by Lois Lilley Howe and Eleanor Manning, who had also attended MIT. In 1926 she became a member of the American Institute of Architects and a partner at Howe, Manning & Almy, Inc. Despite surviving the Great Depression, the firm closed in 1937 after Howe retired. Manning and Almy continued in private practice. Almy also worked with landscape architect Henrietta Pope.
