Kristen is in her fifth and final year of university at the Alberta School of Business, majoring in Human Resources Management. After being a mentor to a young girl with Big Brothers Big Sisters, she was inspired to become more involved in female empowerment. Kristen was the Vice President Events of NEW last year and loved seeing the meaningful relationships that were built between all attendees at the conference.
This year as Co-Chair, Kristen is so excited to be part of a passionate team that creates such a powerful conference for undergraduate students. She loves what NEW stands for and believes in the importance of having a network of strong women that supports one another. Outside of school, Kristen loves playing volleyball, baking and going to happy hour with her friends!
Leslie-Ann is in her final year of the Bachelor of Commerce program with a major in Finance and a minor in Accounting. Over the last couple of years Leslie-Ann has worked with banks, and non-profit agencies allocating some of her time towards teaching financial literacy to all grade levels in schools, and youth communities throughout Alberta.
During her spare time Leslie-Ann enjoys photography, and attending yoga classes with her friends. She also enjoys traveling; especially to her favourite islands in the Caribbean.
It goes without saying that Leslie-Ann is ecstatic and grateful to be a part of the NEW Executive team! She cannot wait to help make a difference in the community, and help make this an incredible experience for all delegates.
