In her role as Chief of Staff, Leandre is the orchestrator behind the scenes of the President’s office and the leader of the College’s institutional communications. As Secretary of the Corporation, she also helps ensure the Board of Trustees is supported, informed and engaged.

Grounding her work in values like curiosity, inquiry and empathy, Leandre blends strategic vision with relentless authenticity. Her audience-focused approach to communications drives her to distill great ideas into clear, concise roadmaps and carefully crafted slide decks.

Leandre previously served as Chief of Staff to the President at St. Michael’s College and the Director of Client & Media Relations at Champlain. She holds an MBA from Brandeis University and a BA from Hamilton College.

Leandre has lived on both coasts and several states in between but is happy to call Burlington, VT her permanent home. When not herding cats, Leandre spends her time running, cycling, hiking, snowboarding and dreaming about her next SCUBA trip. She lives with her partner and two teen-aged children.
