My name is Leann Sassine and I was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario. I am currently a first year law student at the University of Windsor. I have previously completed my MBA and Honours Bachelor of Arts in Forensic Science and Criminology, both from the University of Windsor.
I have several years of experience working in small business, particularly in the retail industry. Upon completion of my MBA, I served as Director of a business incubator providing financing to start-ups in the Windsor-Essex area. Through this role, I gained extensive experience in program implementation and management. I was also responsible for independently establishing and managing relationships with several clients and supporting agencies. I am very passionate about promoting entrepreneurship and innovation, especially in the Windsor area.
I am also very passionate about community building and paying it forward. I have served on various committees throughout Windsor, including United Way, Workforce Windsor and the University. I have also volunteered for Victim Service organizations throughout the community for over five years. I strongly believe in promoting economic growth through entrepreneurship and serving my part in improving the Windsor community in a holistic manner.
