Leisa finds inspiration in the ability to leave things better than she found them. Witnessing ideas and projects evolve into reality, with positive outcomes for all involved, is a driving force in her work. Leisa’s dedication to making a positive impact is evident in her commitment to q4 financial.
Away from the q4 office, she cherishes spending quality time with her family. For Leisa, her family remains a priority. Whether it’s enjoying moments by the fire on their deck, accompanying her daughters on shopping trips, or exploring new bars with her older children. Additionally, she enjoys planning holidays, camping (the more rugged, the better), fishing, and relaxing at the beach. These activities provide the perfect balance to her professional life and allow her to recharge and embrace life’s simple pleasures.
