LaRae Quy

 

LaRae Quy was an FBI counterintelligence and undercover agent who exposed foreign spies and recruited them to work for the U.S. Government. A good FBI counterintelligence investigation uncovers new information about the spy to gain deeper insights into what influences their behavior and attitudes. LaRae’s job was to dig beneath the surface, probe the unknown, and discover their identity. In the process, she ended up knowing more about the foreign spy than they knew about themselves.

“He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty”—Lao Tzu

“Mental toughness . . . seeks wisdom and desires to grow, change, and explore . . . possesses an attitude of positivity and adventure . . . delights in truth and inspiration . . . loves life and lives fully.”
– LaRae Quy

LaRae was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Wyoming where she learned many of the survival skills she would need as an FBI agent. After twenty years as an undercover and counterintelligence agent, LaRae became the spokesperson for the FBI in Northern California for four years. Although the job description had changed, she used the same set of communication skills to present both a compelling message and positive image of the FBI.

LaRae completed graduate studies at Arizona State University before joining the FBI. She has also completed graduate studies at San Francisco Theological Seminary.

“Never ask, Can I do this? Instead ask, How can I do this?”
