Leslie Johnson

Corporate Director, Marketing

“I love that we’re encouraged to not only define the box but challenge and think outside of it.”


I’m inspired by people, travel, food, reading, photography, and being outside!


I love adventuring outdoors, finding a creative outlet, and sharing life with friends and family.


I love serving people. And the complexity of what makes up the industry – people, trends, behaviors, experiences – keeps me on my toes.


Working for hotels was not on my radar. I originally wanted to open a bakery but realized that bakers started their days at 4 a.m. and that I really just loved eating the baked goodies. So I pursued other branches of the industry and fell into the marketing niche of hospitality towards the end of college and have pursued that since.
