Emily Drake has always been a storyteller and connector – committed to inspiring hope, and creating structure, for individuals in transition. She believes in the power of community to get anywhere in life – “better together” is a mantra she lives by.

Emily’s story has her changing career paths four times, from public relations executive to youth development leader; from career counselor and veteran advocate to program and coaching director. After going through a life-changing experience as part of a Flank 5 Academy cohort, Emily began facilitating with company’s co-founders, creating spaces for groups and individuals to access that which does not exist: an intentional space, with support and structure, for the career conversation. Believing it to be not only her passion, but also an obligation, Emily joined Flank 5 Academy as CEO in January 2016.

Emily holds a BA from Augustana College and an MA from Northeastern Illinois University. She is a licensed therapist specializing in working with career changers, beginners or seekers – as well as individuals rebuilding after career trauma.

Damon Hargraves

What you will learn in this video:

  • Why it is easier than you think to create software for your school.
  • Follow the development of Pickr at pickr.org
  • Where you start when developing software.

Damon Hargraves currently resides in Kodiak, Alaska with his wife, two boys & girl, and works in the Kodiak Island Borough School District as the assistant principal at Kodiak Middle School, previously the administrator of Kodiak’s distance learning program.  Damon has worked to develop blended learning environments and project based learning environments (i.e. Student Broadcasting) for kids since 2005 when he started his education career in Bering Strait School District.  He then went on to work at Drury University and Missouri State University to develop online curriculum and facilitate professional development of learning tools.  Since being at Kodiak Middle School Damon has helped to develop the Pickr app, which has greatly increased scheduling efficiency of needed interventions for students.  This has empowered students to pursue the enrichments that interest them and that allow them to go deeper into content.  One example is the newly established Kodiak Middle School Student Broadcasting Team, founded by Damon, that broadcasts a live newscast biweekly and also streams special events around the community on a regular basis.  Damon is also a founding member of #akedchat, so join the conversation on Twitter, and follow him at @damonhargraves.
