leslie-rionA fairly new member to Professional Women’s Forum, Leslie Rion brings many years of experience in the financial services industry.  Leslie is a Wealth Management Advisor for Meridian Wealth Management, LLC.  “I partner with clients to solve challenges in their financial lives by creating custom financial plans and investment strategies that are meaningful and achievable.”

Leslie has been in the financial services industry for 30 plus years.  “I started as a student intern at Hilliard Lyons while studying business at the University of Kentucky.  My previous firms include Morgan Keegan, Lexington Investment Company, and TIAA-CREF.”

In her own words Leslie explains what she likes best about her job.  “Being in the industry long enough to have the opportunity to work with multiple generations of clients has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my career.  It is very satisfying knowing that I’m a key resource in planning for a lot of life’s milestone events.  Seeing a client reach a well-deserved retirement or a child be able to attend a dream college is a lot of fun.”

Leslie would like to share this inspiring thought to other PWF members:  “Investing time and resources into your dreams is empowering.”

When Leslie isn’t helping her clients make their dreams come true she enjoys attending spin classes, traveling, gardening, and sitting in her hot tub!  “I am married to Scott Rion, a real estate professional, TV producer, and drummer.  I am also the proud mother and stepmother of four young adults, Kelsey, Natalie, Bo, and Ben.
