Ryan Abell

What do you enjoy most about the work you do?
I love that our work directly affects the lives of so many Indiana employees and their families.
What's a notable work-related achievement that makes you proud?
Leaving a stable job to join the advisory side of healthcare was a huge risk, but it was worth it to now have the opportunity to serve Indiana employers rather than multi-billion dollar carriers and their shareholders.
Do you have any pets at home?
Tyson. He is a ten year old human boy. He is cute, plays on the floor, likes to go outside, and eats everything.
What's one fun fact about yourself that surprises others?
I have an amateur radio license.
