Employee Spotlight: Leslie Borzea

I was born and raised here in Salt Lake, Cottonwood Heights, to be exact. I am the youngest of five kids (two brothers and two sisters). I met and married my soulmate, Ryan, five years ago. I have five kids, ranging in age from seven to nineteen years old. Yes, I changed diapers for 15 straight years…gah! My love for the outdoors began when I was a young lady, fishing nearly every weekend with my Dad, mostly at Flaming Gorge. Those were by far the best memories of my childhood. I earned my basic and advanced EMT certification a few years ago and got to experience a couple of ride-alongs with the fire department and, ya know, safe a few lives.  I absolutely love every aspect of the outdoors and the feeling of peace and purpose whenever I am there. I’ve loved working here at LM and getting to know like-minded people!

  1. Great Leslie! Gave me some books, movies, and musicians to look into. You're sure the real deal, with more than just "desk experience" in the "outdoors" market.

  2. Good Job Leslie! I'll keep living vicariously through you. I'll let you do the hiking for both of us, especially in the snow. ;)
