Meet The Team
Stefanie Weakley, Owner and Designer
I’m Stefanie, owner and designer behind Abby Maddy!
I am a military wife, mama of two littles and a southern girl at heart. I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Psychology, but entrepreneurship has always been my passion. Our military life takes us lots of places, and we currently reside in the D.C. area!
I love Jesus, traveling, gardening, writing, coffee, chocolate and wine. And I adore my Abby Maddy team who keep me moving, motivated and on track every week!

Meet Lydia! Community Coordinator
Lydia works behind the scenes keeping things moving online each week! She assists with photos shoots collaborations, and features, and keeps all our networking and marketing events organized and on task!
Lydia is a Virginia Tech graduate (go Hokies!) with a degree in Psychology. After living in the great state of Texas for 6 years, she was beyond thrilled to return to Virginia, her home state, with her husband and kids. In addition to their busy family, they have a yellow lab puppy and just welcomed their third child, a beautiful baby boy!
Lydia loves sweet tea, chips and salsa, a good margarita and being a soccer/baseball Mama! "The giggles and little things my kids discover and accomplish on a daily basis keep my heart smiling!" says Lydia.

Meet Kate! Seamstress
Kate is the amazing woman who keeps us on track; diligently cutting, prepping, sewing bags and keyfobs, and making tassels and wristlets for the shop each week. But most importantly she keeps the order in the studio on days when it feels like there is none. She is the go-to girl when deadlines drop, and tackles each task with humor, love and grace.
In addition her super-woman duties in the studio, Kate is married to Billy and they have three beautiful children- including a set of energetic twins. Kate loves movies, red wine and is deathly afraid of public speaking, and it's no surprise her favorite quote is line straight out of Steel Magnolias- "I'd rather have 30 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special." Recently her family purchased a 100 year old farm house where they have daily adventures as they adjust to life in the country.
Meet Amanda! Office Assistant & Collaborations Coordinator!
Amanda works in the office shipping and tracking orders, taking inventory, coordinating photos shoots and collaborations and managing our social media.
Fourteen years ago, she married her high school sweetheart. Not long after they said “I do,” Amanda and her husband moved from south Florida to west Texas where she graduated from Angelo State University with a degree in Communications. They then moved on to the DC area, planted roots, and are here to stay.
Amanda is a proud military spouse and mom to two busy tween boys. She loves coffee and crafting and spends her free time reading mystery novels, online shopping, and taking long walks down the aisles of Target.

Meet Kelli! Seamstress
Kelli works in the studio filling wholesale orders and sewing those beautiful clutches you love! Kelli is the newest member of our team, and joined us in the middle of one of the busiest, craziest seasons we've ever experienced (Hello Fox News segment!) From day one she has tackled every task with ease and grace, always sharing her contagious smile and calming influence with everyone around her.
Kelli has been hooked on sewing since she was a little girl and watched her mom sew her Halloween costumes. Now that she is grown with a husband and four kids of her own, Kelli carries on the tradition and makes her own daughter’s Halloween costumes.
Originally from the peach state of Georgia, Kelli has lived all over the East Coast, from Massachusetts to Virginia. In true Abby Maddy fashion, Kelli loves coffee, the beach and reading mystery novels.
