Leslie Ecklund

Knoxville, Tennessee

Raised in Kingsport, TN, Leslie is a highly motivated business student studying marketing at the University of Tennessee.

She is active in several campus organizations, including the Central Program Council marketing team, Relay for Life, and Pi Beta Phi fraternity. Through her participation in these organizations she has developed her ability to work on a team and gained a new passion for philanthopic organizations.

Her internship with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has given her insight on the business workings of a non-profit organization. She has had the opportunity to aid in the planning of several events and to go above and beyond for her position as an unpaid intern.

Leslie loves constantly learning new things and meeting new people. In her free time she enjoys running 5Ks, re-reading her favorite books, and just enjoying the outdoors.
