It’s tough to paint Leigh with a broad brush. From month-end processes and consolidating financials, to business analysis, accounting, and human resources – she does it all. What sets her apart is how she does it. Leigh takes the meaning of the word “organization” to a whole new level. With close to 30 years of experience working in finance and treasury positions, she’s held lead roles working for not-for-profits, government, multi-nationals, and small businesses, not to mention managed her own business.
Leigh’s patient demeanor, ability to put people at ease, and knack for simplifying tasks allows her to bridge any and all internal gaps. She’s a “glass-half-full” type of person who looks for humour in every situation. While Leigh devotes her brain to accounting and HR, travel stole her heart from a young age, and her love of the world and back country sports always has her scoping out her next adventure.
