LESLIE KEENAN - INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Leslie's role gives her a bird’s eye view of the Division as a whole – member needs, partner needs, Board strategy, staff skills and resources available to support all of these.  She has experienced this role over a number of years and has concluded it’s best described as a listener, an analyzer, a planner, a connector and an evaluator (with a big heart).  Working with a talented team leaves Leslie free to connect with other organizational leaders to help us fulfill our mission and partner on like-minded initiatives.
