LeAnne is a mentor to not only undergraduates, but to the less seasoned professionals around her. She is a steady and calm, focused presence in an event-driven office that can, at times, seem more like a three ring circus. Her analytical abilities are outstanding, allowing her to make nuanced decisions while maintaining productive relationships within her office and across campus. We are so proud that she was awarded the National Association of Student Affairs Proffesionals (NASPA) Region V Outstanding Mid-Level Professional Award on November 11, 2016.
