Jeff Leonard recently joined the Advantage Support Center team. Jeff is a graduate of the University of Michigan and earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. His focus was on theoretical or “pure” math, as opposed to applied math, and Jeff says that his studies prepared him well for being in the support center because the major thing he did was learn to problem-solve. This skill, as well as being someone who is very comfortable with computer technology and the computer programming world, makes him ideal for handling support issues. Jeff truly enjoys being challenged with a problem and digging deep to research it and find a solution.
Jeff was raised in Dexter, Michigan and is living there with his family until his wedding in May. He met his fiancée, Tirienne, at a ballroom dance class at the community college. His goal in taking the class was not to meet women, but rather the result of attending dances in high school and thinking that there had to be better dance techniques. Presumably, he learned some new dance moves in addition to meeting his future wife.
In his leisure time, Jeff volunteers at his church, where he runs the sound board for services, and he also provides math tutoring to friends. He likes to sing and is a former member of The Boychoir of Ann Arbor. He is interested in photography, and had his own photography business at one time. These days, he enjoys it as a hobby and prefers to take pictures of outdoor scenes and nature rather than portraits.
We are pleased to welcome Jeff to the Advantage family.
