Rodman Ride Spotlight: Jackie Lyon

Jackie LyonJackie Lyon is the Marketing and Special Events Manager at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest. Jackie has been a part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest for five years.  She began as a Big Sister during her time as an undergraduate at Clark University and last year Jackie began working for BBBS CM/MW as an Interview and Match/Support Specialist.  Now Jackie has stepped up to the challenge of managing our Rodman Ride efforts.

Jackie truly believes in the Mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Big are amazing at providing one-on-one mentoring for children in need in our communities. She understands that each child is unique and pairs well with a consistent, responsible, positive, and unique adult. What Jackie also likes about Big Brothers Big Sisters is that the staff works specifically to help nurture the life of the match to ensure both the mentor and mentee are supported and that the match lasts.

Jackie’s favorite thing about working with Littles at BBBS CM/MW is seeing the light and joy flood children’s face when they meet their Big for the first time. She also enjoys when Littles look forward to meeting with their Big every week. As an Interview and Match Support Specialist she saw the sense of confidence, excitement and belonging strengthen as the match grew.

Today, Jackie is continuing her work to help make matches through the Rodman Ride. Jackie is fundraising for BBBS CM/MW as a virtual rider for the Rodman Ride because she believes in supporting and providing for children who face adversity. Support Jackie in her virtual ride as she completes 25 good deeds, in honor of the 25 years the Rodman Ride has been supporting children in Massachusetts. You can see her good deeds at #RodmandRide25GoodDeeds.

“It’s really interesting to see how matches transform over time, especially becoming comfortable with each other in just a few months.”—Jackie Lyon, Marketing and Special Events Manager, BBBS CM/MW
