Abby Tolley

Learning Designer

“Learning is a process, a gift, and something we should never stop doing. Learning makes life exciting and helps us each reach our fullest potential.”

Farm kids since birth, Abby and her husband, Seth, both graduated from the University of Illinois, Illini pride firmly intact. Then, they transplanted themselves to the Hoosier state, but worry not, sports fans! Fierce rivalry hasn’t stopped Lafayette, Indiana, from providing Abby a rich environment to learn the rhythms of off-the-farm life, away from row crops, cattle, and 4-H show pigs. When Abby isn’t enjoying, enriching and volunteering for her community of women, she and Seth are soaking up all that life has to offer with their son, Samuel, and their Goldendoodle.

We all know we can count on Abby to deliver “ah-ha moments.” Her passion for creating transformational experiences causes everyone — not just her clients — to re-frame ideas about work, life, and how we go about doing anything. She’s a continuous, lifelong learner who plans abstract ideas into high-quality action steps. Every time, on time.

Not a day goes by when Abby’s not making a list, consulting a list, or thinking about making a list. Her lists keep her mind on mentoring, staying in shape, and doing the right thing, the right way. Among all her lists and activities, Abby loves nothing more than checking off a beautifully decorated cake, baked to make someone smile. It’s a natural extension of Abby’s greatest strengths — planning, process, a little science and a dash of creativity.
