About the Presenter:

“I’m Lenora Leasure and I serve as the JARI PTAC Program Manager, overseeing both the JARI and SPC locations. I have served in this position, managing the program and counseling JARI PTAC clients, since September 2014. I began my PTAC career as a counselor for the Cattaraugus County (NY) PTAC in 2008, assisting businesses with all things government contracting for 13+ years. The JARI PTAC program service area originally included Cambria and Somerset counties and just last August expanded, now covering Allegheny, Armstrong, Fayette, Indiana, and Westmoreland as well.”

“Helping businesses navigate the red tape associated with all levels of government contracting is especially fulfilling for me. Having been a government contractor in the past as the Office Manager for a small, family-owned manufacturing business, I understand where our clients are coming from and I hope I can offer them a unique perspective on the process. Our program is not a one-size-fits-all approach as we know each individual has their own experiences and each business has its own needs.”
