Leslie Day

Business Manager

I began my career at Virginia Tech in March 2007 at the College of Veterinary Medicine, and have since worked in the Department of Finance (College of Business), and in the CAUS Dean’s Office before coming to SPIA in 2012. Originally a Fiscal Technician, I found an interest in financial management and pursued the role of Business Manager to allow me to use both fiscal and analytics skills. At SPIA, my work involves financial and HR oversight including managing budgets, staffing plans, post-award research support, and ensuring compliance with various policies and procedures.

In 2019, I began pursuing a Master’s of Accounting & Information Systems with a focus on Data Analytics in the Pamplin College of Business. Whilework and school take up the majority of my time, I also enjoy spending time with my husband, attending hockey games, cooking, and traveling, especially to National Parks.
