"I am excited to help families across Kansas City in finding what I like to call 'educational homes' for their children. There is no greater reward than knowing that I have helped a child to find a place they feel welcome, challenged, and safe in their learning process."
Leslie Kohlmeyer has lived and worked in KC most of her life. She has been watching as the city has shifted and shaped itself into one of the most beautiful, culturally significant, and family-friendly cities in which to build a future. During her time in Wilmington, North Carolina while completing a Bachelor of Arts degree at University of North Carolina Wilmington, her heart was constantly aching for Kansas City. On a visit home for a high school reunion she "met" her husband. They have known one another since middle school, have 4 great kids and make the Historic Northeast their home. Leslie came to Show Me KC Schools from Academie Lafayette where she spent 4 years as the Outreach and Admissions Coordinator raising the ethnic diversity of incoming students by double digits. She is excited to share that passion for equity in educational options with all families across the city that she loves.
