Freya has been a part of the NorthSky and Rotary family for over 11 years. She grew up in Traverse City and spent many years in the Lansing area for undergraduate and graduate study at Michigan State University. She started her career in public health research and evaluation in juvenile justice, partner violence, and Native American Tribal justice systems. She returned to Leelanau County in 2004 and worked for the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa & Chippewa Indians to develop and evaluate services for Tribal members. Most recently, Freya has helped to lead our evolution to an upstream strategy that supports systems change to address the root causes of our most complex community problems.
