Malia started working at Drake Cooper in 2005, after graduating from the University of Idaho with a degree in communications. She gained early experience as a media buyer, but quickly found her home in account services where she cultivated the skills of a versatile, passionate and engaging project manager. In time, she assumed the title and responsibilities of Brand Manager, providing strategic direction for decisions ranging from media strategy to digital integration. Her collaborative approach to project coordination and customer engagement makes her an asset to clients like Idaho Central Credit Union, Harry Ritchie's, ACHD Commuteride and the Idaho Beef Council.
Outside of the office, Malia is an avid runner and red wine connoisseur - not to be mixed and always in that order! She also enjoys cooking, backpacking with her husband, HBO/Netflix binges and trying to keep up with her aptly-named heeler, Storm.
