Leslie Anderson is a thriving member of JVM’s pre-approval team whose excellent communication and quick-learning skills make her an adept Mortgage Analyst. Leslie grew up in Los Gatos and double majored at UC Berkeley in both Environmental Economics and Environmental Science, Policy and Management. She took a year to study abroad in beautiful Padova, Italy and developed a strong passion for traveling, cheese, and gelato. After graduating, she moved to North Lake Tahoe, her favorite place in the world. She excelled in Tahoe’s unparalleled tourism industry, managing over 40 resort properties all around the lake, in addition to working for a local insurance company where she directly managed hundreds of policies. The outdoor atmosphere encouraged her to take up paddle boarding, beach volleyball, snowboarding, and hiking to find the best views of the lake. Now that she is back in the Bay Area, she is eager to find new hikes with her doodle dog, Dutch. In her spare time, she enjoys building LEGO sets, playing on local intramural teams, and playing video games. Leslie is also an avid sports fan and loves rooting for her favorite local teams. Go Dubs!
