Iyeesha Cook - Founder & Executive Director

Born and raised in Brooklyn NY, Ms. Cook has always wanted to be an engineer.   As a child she was curious and always trying to discover how things worked and thus often disassembled her toys. Naturally, she decided to pursue Industrial Engineering because it was the only discipline that pulls all the engineering and production pieces together.

Iyeesha went on to graduate from Brooklyn Technical H.S. in 1995, and began interning through INROADS NY as a college freshman with NYNEX. However, her first jobs were in high school at the Department of Safety Engineering where she investigated fatal accidents and the Department of Topographical Engineering completing floor plans for future renovations. Ms. Cook later attended SUNY Buffalo where she studied Industrial Engineering and interning with NYNEX and Bell Atlantic (later developed into Verizon). During her senior year she worked as an Assistant Team Leader in the Packaging Department of General Mills. “I loved working in a manufacturing environment because no day was ever the same. I managed 12 packaging lines, completed quality audits, completed ergonomic studies and initiated several workstation reorganization and redesigns.” Post internship, Ms. Cook began her career with Verizon NJ Inc. as an Outside Plant Design Engineer responsible for three wire centers but is currently the Pole and Conduit  Licensing Administrator for Suffolk County N.Y.

In 2002 Iyeesha founded “Independent, Motivated, Educated and Compassionate Youth in Our Community (I.M.E.C.) Inc.,”a youth, community-based mentoring and leadership program. She is an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., on the National and New York Boards of the Consortium of Information and Telecommunication Executives (CITE) and the International Right of Way Association in addition to being a graduate student pursuing three Master of Science degrees in Urban Affairs and Public Administration from Hunter College and Project Management from Stevens Institute of Technology.

My pearl of wisdom for anyone traveling the path of life is to always believe in yourself and strive to achieve your dreams. I had an OK average and a lot of family problems, but I stayed focused … and as long as you are focused, you will achieve!
