Well, It’s Wednesday again and that means BNI Spotlight Day!! Today’s featured member is Leslie Gallaher with Vanquaethem Chiropractic & Massage – Leslie is a great friend and an amazing massage therapist!! We originally met through BNI, were roommates for about a year and of course we still enjoy sipping on the bubbly and chatting the day away. (there are always endless amounts of things to talk about with Leslie Jane Gallaher!
There have been numerous (and I mean a LOT of) times when I have hurt my shoulder, leg, back, neck, hands etc.. and Leslie & the Ten Fingers of Truth (her BNI nickname) was able to help me get back to tip top shape and back in the line of action. (you know, taking pictures!)
So a couple of weeks ago (after our Wednesday morning workout) Leslie & I met for coffee at the Essential Baking Co. in Madison Valley, we talked about work, BNI, boys you know – the usual and before we left I snapped a couple shots of the woman herself, here is what we came up with:
