Leslie Paparo

Coaching Associate

As Coaching Associate, Leslie is responsible for all aspects of the qualitative 360 review process: interviewing client raters and developing an in-depth compilation of the learning and implications. Leslie's natural curiosity lends itself well to uncovering our clients’ strengths and blind spots, which works to their advantage. 

Prior to working with Fast Forward Group, Leslie was the associate producer and editorial assistant at BookGirl TV, a web platform for writers and readers. She was responsible for creating and editing content, and video production.

Leslie also taught elementary school for eight years at an award winning public school in New York City. Although she is no longer in the classroom, her passion for education never ceases; she continues to look for “aha!” moments whether in herself or in others.

Leslie received her M.A. from Columbia University, Teachers College and her B.A. from University of Massachusetts.  She lives in Connecticut with her husband and has two grown sons. Leslie’s hobbies include tennis, traveling, and weight training.
