While growing up, Davy wanted to be a model.

In December 2008, she worked as an intern for Farrer & Company, a London law firm. As of July 2009, Davy has completed her accelerated LLB course at Leeds University. In November 2010, Davy left London to practice law in South Africa and travel. But in early 2011, she returned to England to reportedly begin her training at London law firm, Allen & Overy.
