LeadingAge Florida, Florida’s only association representing the entire continuum of care for older adults, announced today that Lesley Martin has been hired as the association’s Director of Education and Events.
Ms. Martin joins the association from Meeting Expectations where she served as Senior Manager. In her new role, she will be responsible for the development of comprehensive education plans and coordinating all association educational and other events, including the Annual Convention.

At the professional services firm Meeting Expectations, Ms. Martin managed the planning, logistics timelines, reports, and budget updates for client events, including large international conventions. Ms. Martin lives in Tarpon Springs, loves spending time at the beach, and enjoys a getaway in the mountains during the winter. She has one son, Cody, who attends the University of South Florida.
