Leslie P. Gallegos, Staff Accountant for Providence Life Services, is one of our distinguished 2019 Hallmark of Caring Honorees!
Leslie says, “The thing I like the most about working at Providence is the people and the environment. The Providence staff is very friendly, supportive, encouraging, and positive, and the work environment is very bright and sunny.”
Leslie has accumulated many great memories in her 2 years at Providence, including winning cupcake wars and placing in the Christmas decoration contest. But her favorite memory is being selected for Hallmark of Caring this year.
Before working for PLS, Leslie was a personal trainer and group fitness instructor for 12 years. She continues this work part-time, but also volunteers her talents. “I love the gym in the basement. I offer workout Wednesdays for employees free of charge at the PLS gym most Wednesdays at 5 pm.”
Leslie has an accounting degree, and had a decade of experience in the accounting field. She wanted to return to that work, but at a company that cares for their employees and takes pride in their business. She found that here. “PLS believes and practices their motto with their employees and residents to enrich the lives of others through Jesus Christ.”
Leslie has 3 children (Christian, 24; Paulina, 22; and Amaris, 20). Her family also has an 8-year-old dog named Jack who was a rescue and is a hunter.
In addition to work and family, staying fit and healthy is a priority to Leslie, so she participates in races to stay accountable. She just completed the Spartan Super this past weekend, and will also participate in the Chicago Marathon this October.
We are so thankful for Leslie and all she does, and we are honored to have the chance to honor her this Friday at our Hallmark of Caring event!
