Leslee MacKenzie is a mom of two first generation campers. Her son, #23075 Sam, has attended Camp Dudley for five years, most recently as an Aide in the Cub Division. Her daughter, #23316 Kate, received her Kiwi Disc in 2017 at Camp Kiniya and will be back in 2018 for her 5th summer.
Introduced to camp by a college friend, the MacKenzie’s were immediately taken with it. Living close to Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks, it was the perfect fit for their family. Leslee is a strong believer in providing opportunities to our children in their formative years which can make a difference over a lifetime. Also, in an era of athletic specialization, attending Camp Dudley or Kiniya is the perfect balance for kid’s development — not to mention the fun!
As a Board Member, Leslee will bring expertise from her business and community involvement. Following a 10-year merchandising career in Boston, she returned to Burlington. She is President & Co-Owner of Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty, focusing on residential real estate and relocation. Leslee’s experience includes strategic and financial planning, sales, marketing and organizational culture.
Currently a Board Member of the Vermont Business Roundtable, Burlington Business Association & the Vermont Futures Project, past roles include the March of Dimes and Make-A-Wish. Leslee’s volunteer efforts have focused on children, health related issues, early education and economic development.
“It is an honor to be able to contribute back to Camp Dudley and Kiniya. It is a place that has given so much to Sam and Kate and has become part of the fabric of our family.”
