“Powerhouse! That's the word that I'd use to describe Leah McLeod's work and expertise at ASPIRE Solutions Group. When I met Leah 4 years ago, she immediately internalized the vision and mission of The Scholarship Academy, and worked tirelessly with me and my Board to map out a path that would increase our capacity to serve threefold. From strategic planning to fundraising and development, Leah challenges me both personally and professionally to measure our impact, to tell our story, and to constantly evolve our evaluation metrics. All it takes is one "whiteboard" session for you to realize she's the REAL DEAL!”

"Ms. McLeod initially came to the attention of Leadership Preparatory Academy in 2011 when her expertise in the development of public charter schools was first recognized at a forum sponsored by the Georgia DOE. Since that time, we have continuously engaged the professional services of Aspire Solutions Group to insure we remained focused on our goals and mission. The guidance and assistance provided by Aspire has proved most beneficial."

From Charter School start-ups to complex grant applications, Leah is a gifted writer and exceptional project manager. She does extensive research and documentation for each project and is able to facilitate diverse groups and navigate myriad topics. Accountability, timelines and responsibility are essential tools as she guides in SMART goals, outcomes and sustainable projects. I learn so much from her throughout each project – it is truly a pleasure!”
