Sioux Falls Development Foundation Welcomes Leah Blom

  • August 11, 2021

The Sioux Falls Development Foundation is pleased to welcome Leah Blom, who has joined the team as our digital and social media specialist.  She will manage all of the Foundation’s digital and social media marketing efforts, as well as provide marketing support for all of SFDF’s programs and initiatives.  In the spring and summer of 2019, she worked with the Foundation as a social media intern, and is excited to be back in a full-time position.

“I had such an awesome internship experience here, I’ve always wanted to come back,” Blom said. “It’s so fun to be a part of all the exciting things going on economically in Sioux Falls.”

Blom is a native of Pipestone, MN, and is a 2019 graduate of Augustana University.  Previously, she worked at The First National Bank in Sioux Falls as a content strategist and copywriter on the bank’s marketing team.  Aside from her marketing skill set, she loves Sioux Falls, and is looking forward to helping the Foundation continue to make Sioux Falls a great place to live.

“Growing up in a rural area, there were limited options for shopping and entertainment, so my family came to Sioux Falls all the time. Because of that, it became like a second hometown to me, which is what eventually led me to attend college here and move here after school. Organizations like SFDF who invest in improving Sioux Falls are the reason for stories like mine, and I’m excited to help others experience how great our community really is,” Blom said.
