Leslie earned her Bachelor of Commerce in Finance and Marketing, a double concentration from the McIntire School of Commerce at University of Virginia. She kicked off her career in mergers and acquisitions at Harris Williams & Co., a Richmond-based investment banking firm she joined as one of the first 15 employees. From selling companies to investing in them, she continued honing her skills as a relationship-builder and creative problem-solver at the venture capital firm Jefferson Capital Partners. Next, Leslie devoted eight years at Circuit City’s headquarters in various roles, including business development, where she co-founded the $250 million Firedog service business. She also co-founded a technology services company, Zigmo, in 2010. Before coming to Unboxed, Leslie provided strategy and growth consulting to fast-growing businesses across the U.S.
