Abbey Bruner is the friendly and welcoming voice at the South Dakota Corn office. As the Executive Assistant, Abbey manages calendars, travel arrangements and projects for the SD Corn Executive Director, South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, and South Dakota Corn Growers Association. She is a vital link in the organization, facilitating efficient communication and coordination.
Born and raised in Nebraska, Abbey attended Kilian Community College in Sioux Falls, SD. Since 1994, she has called Sioux Falls home with her husband John and their two adult boys, Dylan and Blake. Tragically, Blake lost his life to suicide in 2022, igniting Abbey and her family's determination to raise awareness about mental health and suicide prevention resources such as the 988 hotline.
In her free time, Abbey loves spending quality time with her family, tending to her 34 houseplants, spoiling her beloved dog and volunteering with organizations like The 437 Project, The Helpline Center, and Live Inspired 365. Through her contributions to these causes, Abbey strives to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
