VP of Member Development


Freda Drake’s background is a mix of marketing, public relations, and sales. She has a passion for people, not numbers. She’s written technical manuals on green cleaning, which have been used for certifications, and edited and contributed to various books. She has a blog that was named one of the top blogs by two of the major newspapers in the Tampa Bay area. Her writing expertise stems from a long line of authors: Both of her parents are published and her grandmother was one of the first female journalists in the US.

Freda has a PhD in Business Administration. She taught management skills at a graduate level and has appeared on both television and radio, where she communicates about her interests and passions.

She’s currently a board member for SOFA (Survivors of Family Abuse) and is active in her community. She believes the only wasted life is the life without learning.
