Crane: Unfold Your Story

Dr. Leslie Batty

conceptual strategist


Leslie’s quick wit not only allows her to find the humor in most situations, but also to feel her way through more serious scenarios with even-keeled, good-natured aplomb.


Vivid and energetic, Leslie’s writing echoes through metaphor and holds the pose of image—but always in the service of the most evocative impressions possible, to reveal what makes each client wonderful and one-of-a-kind.


With a Ph.D. in English from Purdue University and years of teaching experience in higher education, Leslie embraces learning wherever the opportunity presents itself and thrives on tackling complex problems of institutional identity—translating apparent contradictions into exhilarating clarity.
