Written by: Brady Drake

Tell us about yourself. Tell us who you are and what you do.

I was born and raised in Langford, SD, a small town where community values shaped me profoundly. Moving to the FM area in 2012 for my degree at MSUM, I found another community I loved and never left! Now, as the Engagement Manager at High Point Networks, I focus on driving demand and engagement around targeted solutions, working closely with our sales team, and partners.

Who are some people who have been influential in your journey and why? Who inspires you?

My parents instilled in me the fearlessness to pursue my passions. Jerry Daily, who hired me for my first coaching position, ignited a passion I didn’t know I had. His belief in me started a journey of impacting athletes, for which I’m forever grateful.

What drives you?

My faith acts as my compass, pushing me to live a life of meaning and purpose, impacting those around me for the better.

Tell us about 1-2 books, podcasts, or professional development experiences that have changed the way you view leadership.

I attended the Global Leadership Summit last year, where Cynt Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, emphasized the importance of loving people in leadership. This shifted my perspective from focusing solely on business decisions to prioritizing knowing and loving my team.

What are some important life lessons you have learned?

Be resilient, embrace discomfort, strengthen your faith, practice gratitude, and be the change you want to see.

What are some of your favorite things to do in our community?

Exploring FM area parks with my dogs, coaching volleyball, and volunteering.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Leading a team, doing what I love, surrounded by loved ones, and growing even stronger in my faith.

What are you hoping to gain from the United Way 35 Under 35 Women’s Leadership Program?

New connections, inspiration, and opportunities to make a difference in the community.
