Professional Training & Experience
Leandie worked for an accounting firm in South Africa for over 5 years and has always loved numbers. She also studied accounting part time at the University of South Africa. Staying with finance, she has worked in Healthcare as well as overseas investements at a custodian bank.
In 2016, Leandie and her husband moved to Kansas City to help with a church plant where they did everything from set up and tear down, kids ministry, bookkeeping and leading small groups.
She has also been on short term mission trips to Africa and the middle east. Even though short term trips are great to experience, she is excited to come to EMI everyday and see the ministry make a difference and build long term relationships with their partners.
Leandie met her husband in South Africa in 2011 and they both have a love for travelling. They have a beautiful 18month old daughter and a boy on the way this summer. They love being back in Colorado with family and the mountains.
