I am Angie Bakke, a dynamic and engaging leader of Doctors for America, a national non-profit physician advocacy organization. My superpower is bringing people together to find mutually beneficial solutions to solve problems. I have expertise in health care, media, advocacy, fundraising, operations and change management. I enjoy helping others see their potential by creating a fearless culture to continuously learn and grow to create tremendous success.
As an executive, I became an expert in aligning big-picture goals with daily operations, strategic initiatives, and special projects working at the American Cancer Society, the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations and Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center. I have the great gift of supporting over 27,000 doctors and medical students that are a part of Doctors for America. These incredible individuals volunteer outside of their daily jobs to improve the health care system for patients. My job is to make advocacy as easy as possible. I am passionate about working in a position where I can utilize my skills to foster systemic improvements to better the lives of others.
My educational background includes an MBA from the University of Sioux Falls, in South Dakota with a special emphasis in marketing. A lesser known fact is that I have over 35 years of experience as a radio personality working at rock stations from Seattle, WA, to Sioux Falls, SD. My interest in communications has come full circle bringing diverse opinions and perspectives together to create dialogue and a way forward. I live in Sioux Falls, SD with my husband Todd where we enjoy antiquing, riding motorcycles and going to as many concerts as possible!
