Leslie Hyland, is the new Operations Coordinator, at Oregon Direction. She holds an undergraduate degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Special Education. She has recently retired from 34 years of teaching to help her husband, Patrick, with the many and varied requirements for the new counseling agency.

Those years of experience working with students, parents and administrators have given her the knowledge and capability to bring effective and efficient office procedures and protocols to the new office. Her position for helping and coordinating clients, counselors and administrative staff at Oregon Directions will contribute to an important aspect of Oregon Directions’ vision, mission, objectives and goals.
