Interview Noelle LeBlanc
Who are you? Noelle LeBlanc, a paraprofessional with Lincoln Derr PLLC.
What do you do? I am responsible for all the inner workings of the firm – the “wizard behind the curtain” if you will; ensuring everything runs like clock-work.
Where did you come from? Richmond, Virginia. I grew up in Richmond, Virginia and thought I would always be a “Southern girl” until I decided to join the Air Force and found myself in Fairbanks, Alaska! My mother’s side of the family is true Charlotteans, tracing our ties to Charlotte back to 1868. After getting out of the military, I decided to hold to family tradition and moved to Charlotte in 1993. From a professional standpoint, I’ve worked the full range of law offices to include the sole practitioner, medium-sized insurance defense firms to the large scale national firm.
How did you get here? I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join an all-female start-up firm that has an innovative vision for client service.
Why should I hire you? You will get the best litigation team in Charlotte.
Business philosophy? Treat others as you would want to be treated.
Proudest moment? Birth of my beautiful daughter.
Biggest regret? Not getting a chance to say good-bye to my father before he passed away.
Favorite quote? “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Best quality in business? My “A type” personality.
Making it Personal
Family? I’m married to my best friend and after 25 years of marriage “We Still Do!” Our only child, just completed her 6 year enlistment in the U.S. Air Force, is married and the mother of our first granddaughter and soon to be first grandson. I couldn’t be more proud of my family and the blessings I have been given in this life!
If I could meet anyone… Matthew McConaughey—my favorite male actor.
If I could hear any song right now… Brown Eyed Girl
My biggest influence is… God.
Three random things about me…
- I went on an incentive flight in a F-16 Fighter Falcon Jet– I’m afraid of heights but don’t regret a second of the ride;
- my very first job was selling newspaper subscriptions door-to-door and I hated it and
- I spent two weeks in Africa on a mission trip and would love to go back!
