Getting to know to Lesley

Why do you feel "called to care" about Disciples health and social service ministry?
Working for NBA makes me feel like I am doing something meaningful since we are a part of the health and social service ministry of the church. I am a people pleaser by nature so I enjoy helping others out. With the outsourced accounting I do here, I am able to give others the help they need with the accounting portion of their jobs.

Who is a hero of yours, and why?
I would have to say my mom is my hero. She has been with me through my whole life no matter what, and I have learned many things from her. I have learned that parenting is very hard and I think that she did a really good job.   

If I tried to find you in a supermarket, what aisle would you be in?
I am all over the place!!! I try my best to eat healthy, but with a growing son and a dog, I am up and down all of the aisles before I get to check out.
