Katie Drasser discusses what she has learned about leadership from her experience in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors.
The Power of the Collective. Katie believes that what we can do together translates to public health. We can understand a person, a community, a family, and a system better by understanding health.
Launching Rock Health. Katie is driven by her passion for helping people, and her ability to identify opportunities when they are most needed. Rock Health invests in the next generation digital health pioneers and advises major corporations on how to lead in this new world.
Knowing Where to Lead. Part of being a leader is knowing when to lead and when to lean on others. Katie thinks about who is going to have the most impact when, how, and where, and she supports others to do the same.
