Leslie joined Arcadia Abroad in 2021 as a recruitment strategy consultant and now serves as Director of Strategic Institutional Engagement. 

Prior to Arcadia, Leslie ran a strategic marketing consultancy, supporting clients in industries ranging from artisan furniture making to a machine learning tech firm using satellite data to build a living map of the world’s food system.

For two decades, Leslie has worked in marketing and business development in international education and higher education. She served as Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing at an environmental study abroad provider, Associate Vice President for Marketing at the University of Massachusetts President’s Office, and as the founding Director of Marketing at UMassOnline. 

When she’s not working, Leslie is in her garden or spending time with her husband, four children, two dogs, and her dad. When time allows, she volunteers with a local dog rescue and a climate change advocacy organization, while trying (usually unsuccessfully) to get to the gym regularly.
