Leslie Johnson

Title/s:  Academic Advisor


Originally from Madison, Wisconsin Leslie earned her B.A. in Sociology from Drake University. She spent a year after college living in New Zealand and then moved to Japan to teach English. She enjoyed working with students so much that she decided to pursue higher education work and received her M.A. in International Education from SIT (School for International Training).

After receiving her M.A., she worked as a Study Abroad Advisor at University of Florida before deciding to move back to the Midwest and work for The Education Abroad Network in Chicago. 

She is excited to be back in a university setting and support students in their transition to higher education! For fun, Leslie loves to travel, read in coffee shops, check out local storytelling events, and play with her cats Turtle and Eleanor.
