Leesa began her career in the steel industry and decided early on to take a focus on the metallurgical sector. Her extensive knowledge of the screw machine, cold heading and fastener manufacturing processes coupled with her keen business acumen, led her to progress far up the corporate ladder before branching out on her own. Prior to launching Quality Assistant Corporation, she served 18 years at Plymouth Steel in various capacities, 5 years at Super Steel Treating as Lab Manager, 14 years at Quality Manager of Emerald Steel Processing and finally 4 years as Supplier Development Engineer for KAMAX LP.
Leesa earned a degree in Metallurgical Science and Engineering from Macomb Community College. She is based out of Attica, Michigan, and in addition to being a lifetime member of the ISFP is a member of AIAD. She credits her success to her strong believe in continued education that enabled her to have a broad range of knowledge about the steel industry. Outside of running her company, Leesa enjoys travel and spending time with her family.
