Get to Know: Alex Friske!

Name: Alex Friske
Title: Enrollment & Matching Specialist
Start Date: August 2017

My favorite memory from working at BBBSCI is any chance staff gets to have a huge potluck! I love an excuse to eat lots of great food at work.

What I love most about my job is the honor of sitting down for a couple of hours with people without any distractions. I like hearing about their lives, and why they want to be a part of the program. I’ve interviewed hundreds of people by now, and each interview is totally unique. Never gets old!

How has mentoring played a role in your life? Mentoring has helped shape my career path and has helped me to believe in myself. Whether they were formal or informal mentors, they all taught me to trust my judgement and follow my gut!

When I’m not at work, you can find me listening to podcasts, practicing yoga, reading about health & wellness, watching the latest Netflix series, perfecting my homemade hummus & hanging out with friends.

What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? As of right now, I would say Ukiyo (the ramen is perfection in a bowl) and The Hot Room (the best yoga studio in town!).
