Meet Leslie Jordan

During her tenure at the YMCA, which began as a Zumba Instructor, Leslie has leveraged her skillset and experience to meld the mission of the Y and her passion of teaching and closing gaps of opportunity for all. Of her many accomplishments, Leslie recently received the Chapter 67 Cause Driven Leader of the Year Award, that recognizes YMCA leaders and innovators for embodying the mission of the organization.  Formally educated with a Dual Master’s Business Administration and Public Health,

Leslie uses dance and humor as her tools to bridge gaps between people and circumstances. In her entrepreneurial pursuits, as fitness content creator and health coach, she endeavors to give practical tools to clarify, connect, and expand our consciousness in all areas of life and employs positive psychology strategies that empower all to unapologetically accept themselves and realize their life’s vision.
