Get to Know: Drew Neddo!

Name: Drew Neddo
Title: Senior Mentoring Relationship Specialist
Start Date: August 2016

My favorite memory from working at BBBSCI is … Definitely getting to work between Rod and Bridget in our new office. Rod tells a really good story and gives great advice. Bridget always shares funny internet based things with me. Another favorite memory is having Duo’s in our old location. I miss Anne and company and the food.

What I love most about my job is … Getting to introduce Littles and Bigs and watching them both go from nervous excitement to full on can’t hold it in excitement.

How has mentoring played a role in your life? I think having people in your life who trust you to try new things, difficult things and challenges you is really important.

When I’m not at work, you can find me … Spending time with my family, hopefully outdoors. We like to ride bikes so you can often find us on the Monon Trail riding to get ice cream.

What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? I have lots! The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is definitely high on my list. As previously mentioned we like bikes and really enjoy watching races at the Major Taylor Velodrome (I think there are fewer than 30 velodromes in the country!). Was the question what is your favorite oval in Indianapolis? I like grocery stores a lot too- Saraga, Viet Hua, Aldi, all of them. Locally Grown Gardens at 54th and the Monon is our favorite place to go in the summer to get peaches and tomatoes (and all year to get sugar cream pie). The canal towpath is my favorite place to run in the city.
