Born and raised outside of Bronx, N.Y., Sadaf Haq and her family moved to Frisco after a gut feeling she had that North Dallas was where her family needed to be. Ms. Haq has her master’s degree in public health and is back in the workforce with her husband at his practice, Pain Management of North Dallas, where she does business development and administration work.
Ms. Haq has always had a love for civic engagement, and she credits Frisco for making it easy to be civically engaged. She is in her second term on the Social Services and Housing Board and sits on a board for a Collin County Impact Council that deals with mental health, social services, etc. Roles on these boards led her to apply for Leadership Frisco, where she now sits on the Advisory Council and has just been appointed to the Frisco Census Committee. After her time in Leadership Frisco, others began approaching her about future leadership opportunities and encouraged her to run for City Council.
Ms. Haq shares, “It is a matter of realizing that no matter where you come from, no matter who you are, you are serving the people of Frisco. My message has always been one of inclusion and how we are not only American first, but we are Frisco first here.”
The future is bright for Ms. Haq as she keeps venturing out of her comfort zone. “I believe God placed me in this position to make this decision and that He will guide me further.”
