Leslie comes by way of the Midwest, born and raised in Indiana. Soon after graduation she moved to Chicago and started her career in Audit/Accounting where she traveled opening/auditing new Hotels across the Country. That’s where the love of travel started and eventually landed her permanently in Sarasota at a local CPA firm auditing Non Profit Organizations. That’s where she first was introduced to former C.E.O, Michael Cuffage and started following CAN’s mission. Soon after leaving the CPA firm in 2007, Michael asked her to serve on the CAN’s Board of Directors where she served for 5 years before joining the CAN’s family on a full-time basis in 2012. Leslie still loves to travel but mostly their annual Fall trip to the Greater Smokey Mountains with her wife Cheryl.
