Freya Bradford

Freya is pictured at Traverse Area District Library, in celebration of the many libraries across the five counties that are barrier-free public spaces to tap into knowledge that is outside of one's own lived experience. We have contributed over $545,000 to libraries since our inception.

"One of my family's favorite places is the Traverse Area District Library. We love that there is a place we can go and spend time together that is free and full of all kinds of treasures - books, movies, music, STEM kits, board games! What more does one need?"

Director of Systems Change & Learning

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.
