Leena had a dream in 1985. In 1989 it came true. 25 years later, the dream of Leadership Long Beach lives on, just as she saw it.
Leena wrote a vision statement and made a simple plan and budget. She researched top community leadership programs coast-to-coast including her alma matre program, Leadership St. Pete, in Florida.
And in 2014 it celebrated 25 years of recognizing, identifying, inspiring and training more than 1,000 civic and business volunteers who had a vision to transform Long Beach, CA. Leena was a co-founder and first Executive Director and executive committee member of this nationally prominent community leadership development organization. She has facilitated vision-development for communities, charitable organizations, churches and corporations offering a unique holistic blend of formal business training and organization and leadership development skills with meditation technologies, yoga philosophy, depth of experience and an absolute confidence that all is possible.
