Meet Leslie 

Owner, Natural Outreach Solutions

Project/Product/Program Manager
Education Specialist
Social Science Researcher

Leslie Anne Grill is the owner of Natural Outreach Solutions and is the main contact on all NOS projects. Growing up mainly in St. Louis, Missouri, she developed a love for all things nature from an early age. This led her to earn a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Missouri in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences. After graduating, Leslie spent four years living and working in Costa Rica.


Her experiences leading programs in sustainable community-based tourism drove her to Auburn University where she completed her Master of Science in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, studying the demand for and preference diversity for outdoor and nature tourism in the Southeast United States. Having never lost her love of social science research, education and outreach she went on to study Adult Education at the doctoral level, also at Auburn University.


Leslie calls it "her job" to make people look good. She takes pride in adding value to others whether it's through teaching and coaching; managing the details of a project; developing and implementing trainings or curriculum; documenting a story through multimedia and photography; or conquering  your social science and marketing research needs.  

It is always my job to make you look good and I love my job.
