CEO and Founder
Organization: The Mother Company
Abbie Schiller is the CEO and Founder of The Mother Company, a multi-media company focused on social and emotional literacy through helpful, stylish products for young kids. The Mother Company creates the “Ruby’s Studio” product line of beautiful DVDs, downloads, apps, books, and music, all focused around social/emotional topics of importance to young children. Abbie started the company when her daughter was in preschool and she yearned to find a hero in children’s media who would help teach the important social and emotional lessons she struggled with at home. She created Ruby – a smart, grounded show host who is a mix between Mister Rogers and Mary Poppins – and today, the award-winning “Ruby’s Studio: The Feelings Show” is being enjoyed by children around the world. Abbie spends her time developing new shows and products, overseeing brand strategy, marketing and sales. Growing as quickly as The Mother Company, Abbie’s daughter is now 7 – and she welcomed a baby boy into the family the same month “Ruby’s Studio” launched. Abbie is also married to a very patient and understanding husband.
