Get to Know Chief Networking Officer Leslie Cunningham

Leslie Cunningham

Chief Networking Officer

We may call her our Chief Networking Officer, but perhaps Chief Inspiration Officer would be more fitting. Leslie’s simultaneously our yin and our yang: she has big ideas but can reign them into reality; she is kindness personified, but knows when to talk tough; she’s dyslexic and left handed, a life she dubs “backwards,” yet it’s Leslie that always drives us forward. The mom of one is a yogi, writer, photographer, and loyal member of the Green Ridge Girls.
