Aderyn Bright

Resource Coordinator

Go find your team. Get to work. Whatever that work is that you find worth doing. Do it and find some people to love who’ll do it with you.”

Aderyn Bright is the Resource Coordinator at Cook Ross. In her role, she assists stakeholders in resourcing talent for new and existing client engagements, retaining meaningful relationships, ensuring that all projects are delivered on-time, in scope, and within budget. 

Her philosophy of work is to always be ready for personal evolution and transformation, she finds ways to challenge herself and regularly gets outside her comfort zone. Her goals are to seek out new projects to get involved in and to learn something new every day. She believes that the greatest reward is growth.   

As a bi woman, fighting for LGBT rights has been a central part of Aderyn’s life for many years.

While working for Cook Ross helps expand her knowledge, understanding, and focus to support the work being done more broadly within the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility space, 

her background includes 10 years of experience building outreach and education programs for nonprofits that work at the intersection of environmental and social justice, and within educational institutions. This led her to a deeper understanding of the injustices and disparities faced by so many in the U.S. 

As a mother of an energetic and bold six-year-old, you can find Aderyn on day trip adventures with her daughter and partner, sprucing up her garden, throwing killer parties, playing video games (Age of Empires, anyone?), tabletop role-playing games, and any strategy-based board game, uncovering new perspectives through reading, knitting/crocheting rectangular thingsand traveling the world whenever the opportunity presents itself.
