She works in Outside Marketing Sales for Costco. That job began when Lesanics took a temporary seasonal part time job with the store during the holidays. Management asked her to stay on and after about a year after that, they moved her to Outside Marketing, where she represents Costco at local businesses, trade fairs and activities.

Her topic will be, “How to Make Your Costco Membership Work for You and Your Business.”
