Employee Spotlight: Getting to Know the Leonard’s Team!

For this month’s newsletter, I interviewed another awesome Leonard’s team member, Lisa Dowling. I decided to give guys a little sneak peek of the interview! Lisa, previously a teacher, joined the Leonard’s team just over a year ago. She now works in the High School Yearbook Department. “It is great to have a former educator on staff. It gives us a better perspective in this business that we normally would not have,” says Claudia Dencer, Director of School Relations and Marketing. Lisa is an asset to the team and Leonard’s is incredibly fortunate to have her on board! Check out the full interview!


What is your name? 

Lisa Dowling


Which department do you work in? 

High School Yearbooks

What are some of your daily tasks?

Research and development, creating individualized programs to meet school needs, meeting schools and advisers to share with them how Leonard’s can help their yearbook programs,  working with sales, tech, school relations and designer year book teams in all kinds of capacities.

Here at Leonard’s we capture memories! What is one memory you are glad you captured through photography? 

I have a silly photo of me and my sister when we were in our early 20s.  We are at a party, hugging for the camera.  There is a love and a happiness in our faces. It reminds me of who I was, and inspires me to enjoy every day and pass on that love for life to my daughter.

What are three words that best describe you? 

Positive, strategic, personable.

Do you have any special talents?

I can ride a unicycle.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I want to kayak, or maybe surf.  Still not out of the question!!

If you could meet anyone, living or deceased, who would it be?

I would have to say either Jon Bon Jovi or Kate Chopin.  The first because I have been a fan of his since the 80s and I still have a tremendous crush, and the 2nd because she was one of the first American authors to write about the inner conflicts of a woman struggling to balance her self-identity and her obligations as a wife/mother, which is still so relevant today.

What is the best part of waking up? 

Getting started on a fresh day.  Each day is a clean slate and a new opportunity!

 Is a picture worth a thousand words? 

Yes!  A visual can capture a feeling for me in a way words cannot.  I am particularly partial to faces and expressions on them.
