LeighAnne graduated from the College of the North Atlantic’s Programmer Analyst Business program in 2005 and has since been involved in the IT Industry in some capacity. Upon graduation, she started out in technical support with a major oil company and then became a web consultant to the Government of Newfoundland Labrador. From there, she moved toward a marketing and events focus, taking a position with a local oil & gas industry association. In her current position, as Industry Development Officer with the Government of Newfoundland Labrador, LeighAnne contributes both her web development and marketing skills by playing a key role in the ‘getting the message out’ program, an initiative of the Department of Innovation, Business and Rural Development. LeighAnne feels there is great reward in educating the youth of our province on the opportunities in Newfoundland Labrador and how they can reach their potential right here at home; and is very passionate about utilizing technology to find innovative ways to deliver the message.
