Name: Allyson Cooper
Title: Volunteer Enrollment Specialist
Start Date: September 2018
My favorite memory from working at BBBSCI is … Being introduced to my significant other, Chad, who worked for the agency’s IT company. Chad had helped set up all our new computers, and we happened to hit it off. My life has been better ever since.
What I love most about my job is … Working alongside my team members. They make me laugh and they support me unconditionally. Some days are tough, but it’s reassuring to know that I have a safety net around me. At times, we feel like family.
How has mentoring played a role in your life? My mentor is Rachel, who was a previous supervisor of mine. She taught me the importance of being present/in-the-moment, staying involved in the community, and learning how to be at peace with where I’m at in life.
When I’m not at work, you can find me … Crafting, baking something sweet, riding bikes with people I love, or drinking bubble tea.
What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? Yujo – this is a bubble tea and ramen restaurant located at 94th and Meridian. Delicious. Marott Park – this is a quiet park in Indianapolis. It’s never too busy and it’s great for walks, picnics, etc.
