See what Leslie's Managers have to say about her!

http://www.linkedin.com/in/leslieevanoff

“I had the pleasure of working with Leslie while at the Dallas office of Dimont & Associates. She was welcoming to our clients and guests, and insured all aspects of projects given to her were completed and accounted for. She demonstrated her dedicated and flexibility continuously while expanding her knowledge and experience. She was eager to learn new things and help out wherever she could. Leslie's dedication, energy, and commitment would benefit any company or group.”

2010

Toby Buckalew, IT/Facilities Manager, Dimont & Associates

“I have had the pleasure of working with Leslie for some time now and I am absolutely impressed with her ability to communicate, get it done no matter what it takes and get the job done quickly. Actually, I do not believe I have ever seen her walk anywhere within the office. She is constantly running from one spot to another. Leslie is a person I trust, respect and rely on without question. I would have no problem recommending her for a position in any organization.”

 2010

Terry Yosten, Claims Supervisor, Dimont & Associates

“I had the pleasure of working with Leslie for two months. She was the first face anyone coming to the company saw. I found Leslie to be welcoming, dedicated, capable, creative and extremely organized. Leslie looked for projects to expand her knowledge and value. A quick study she was relied on to fill gaps that others, even more senior than her, were unable to accomplish. Leslie is a rare talent that would be a great addition to any customer facing organization.”

Interest

I always love learning and trying new things. Whether I am trying a new restaurant or experiencing a new culture, I value self-progress and will try just about anything once. I play tennis and like to be outdoors any chance that I can. On the other hand, I don't mind spending all day in a book store reading. Art is a huge hobby of mine, I love to observe other people's art and to create my own. 

Profile

A fine bottle of wine cannot always be predicted by the age, background or maturity of the bottle. In fact, it is the superior grape that determines the worthiness of the wine, not its age or background. Like the future potential of a young, high quality grape, I am a great investment. My goal is to maintain my high quality and improve in complexity as I mature.

My youth and passion are my strengths. I have fresh, innovative ideas and I am always exposing myself to new concepts, experiences, trends and mediums. I value personal development and absorb all the information I possibly can from  every experience and opportunity.

My value is my ability to transform everything around me by boosting its brand and inner character. Like a fine wine made of perfectly ripened grapes I too am bright, distinctive, vibrant, balanced, smooth, refreshing, sophisticated, rare and expressive. I too can work well in pairs, adapt to many different social settings and continue to improve with age when placed in a supportive atmosphere.
