Leslie started her professional career in Quality Control in the mid 80’s and became an ASQ Certified Quality Engineer (ASQ CQE) 06/02/2007. One of the core functions of this position was auditing other company’s quality systems. Another aspect of this job was writing technical operating procedures for the company. At multiple manufacturing companies she was the Quality Department Manager. In 2006 she started a roofing company with her husband Jim. Owning and operating this company has been very educational. And rewarding in knowing that God has richly blessed our company so that we can provide for our employees and their families. The business began in their home as a part time endeavor in the evenings and weekends. Jim was in the roofing industry so word spread fast that they were open for business and they became very busy and eventually quit their full time jobs and went full time with their roofing company. Today the company is one of the top roofing companies in the Twin Cities.
Leslie embraces challenges and feels they are learning experiences to mold her into a better person. She spends her leisure time racing her car on the dirt track, driving her motorcycle, skydiving, going on top of tall buildings to photograph her roofing company’s latest roof, reading books and hanging out with her Grandkids. She lives in the country near the Twin Cities with her husband and 4 dogs.
