After spending all of her 20s dedicated to her military service in the U.S. Army, Army National Guard, and with multiple government agencies, Leslie was eager to make a change and join the company of her long time friend and fellow veteran, Direction CEO, Chris Kirksey. Having watched Direction grow from a small one-man venture to the ever-growing power house it is today, Leslie couldn’t resist the opportunity to be a part of it! Leslie is fluent in several languages and loves to immerse herself in learning about other cultures, from fashion, family, religion, and especially… Food! With her unique government and private sector mission management experience, shameless Southern hospitality, and driven personality, Leslie is a spectacular addition to the team as Direction’s Marketing Coordinator.
What's Leslie Doing After Work?
After work, you can usually find Leslie outside chasing her 3-year-old son and German Shephard Dog or helping her 10-year-old daughter with Math homework. If she’s lucky, she may get an acknowledgment of existence from her very sassy Persian cat, Shireen. Leslie also enjoys spending time with her beau, Nick, watching Netflix with her best friends, & cooking for everyone. Leslie not only completed her 200-YTT – She is finishing up a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies. Leslie’s favorite quote is “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” and lives by that every day, continually working towards life goals that she is now set up to accomplish after leaving the service.
