Throughout the week, field professionals, chaperones, and many volunteers will come together to provide an excellent experience at LEAD WI.
Here are just a few of those involved in leadership!
LEAD WI Director
Growing up with a father that served in the Army, Sierra has spent a lot of time around guns, tanks, and helicopters. She was born and mostly raised in Kansas with a love for the summer heat and sunflowers!
Sierra graduated from Maranatha Baptist University with a Communication Arts degree, digital media concentration and enjoys using her degree, especially for graphic design and photography. Following graduation, she jumped right into working for Wisconsin Family Council.
Sierra enjoys being active outside and running, a hobby she fostered on MBU’s Cross-Country team. She has a deep love for the military and their families, as well as working with children. She is active in her church’s youth group and enjoys the opportunities the Lord gives to create new connections and friendships.
She works on and speaks on a variety of topics, all in an effort to strengthen, preserve and promote marriage, family, life and religious freedom in Wisconsin.
As president of Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council, she has both a strong platform and a strong voice on issues impacting Wisconsin families as well as for encouraging citizens to be informed and involved so they can make a positive difference in their communities.
Accounting Manager & Database Manager
Leslie grew up in Mayville Michigan. She attended Maranatha Baptist University (where camp is held!) and graduated with a degree in accounting. She began working for Wisconsin Family Action six months after graduating. After working in the office for six years, Leslie moved back to Michigan to be closer to family.
She has a beloved dog named Winston (which the whole office adores). Leslie works with the Awana program on Wednesdays at her church as well as in the 2-3 yr old class on Sundays.

They are all actively involved in their church where Josh serves as a deacon and music leader.
