About

Name:

Rebecca Yeakey

Tells us a little about yourself.

I'm from Elkhart, Indiana which is about 3 miles from Michigan and about 20 minutes from Notre Dame. I'm fairly new to Indy, having moved here after graduating from Indiana University - Bloomington in May of 2017. I'm currently working as a healthcare consultant at Crowe Horwath. In my free time, I like to stay active. I'm an avid intramural sports participant (kickball, volleyball and bowling so far!). I also play on a USTA tennis team and am currently training for a half marathon. I also like to spend time with friends especially at breweries or venues with live music, playing with other people's dogs, and listening to podcasts.

What is one thing about yourself that would surprise people?

One of my college majors was Spanish and I lived in Madrid, Spain for 6 months.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

People that linger in the middle of store aisles and people that don't put their carts away (evidently I do a lot of shopping)

What was your favorite TV show/book growing up?

Full House all the way (Don't ask me about the revival; it's not the same)! My favorite book was Esperanza Rising. I think that was part of why I wanted to study Spanish in high school and college.

What is your favorite cereal (or breakfast food)?

None actually. I've not super down with soggy foods. Granola bars are much more my speed.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

Invisibility so I can be "a fly on the wall" as I'm both nosy and think it'd help me be a great spy.

Why did you want to get involved with Circle City Connect?

When I moved to Indy, I really wanted to find outlets to both get involved and meet new people. Fortunately, I was able to find a great group with Circle City Connect and can't wait to contribute more this year!
