Alina Lehnert, 40 

Owner of Lehnert Leadership Group LLC
Charity: Evangel University’s Leadership Programs


Alina Lehnert’s favorite feature is her mind. It was her mind that listened to her college mentors tell her she could be a professor. It was her mind that loved learning so much it drove her to earn a master’s degree in counseling and a PhD in Organizational Leadership and to start her own business, Lehnert Leadership Group LLC. She uses her mind to find things that draw her in, and she finds that in developing people’s talents. 

“I like to draw out the best in people, and show them what they’re capable of in all walks of life,” she says.  

Alina is passionate about education. She says she’s passionate about everyone, but especially women, getting more education and becoming life-long learners. “It doesn’t have to be a degree,” she says. “Any learning is moving you forward.” 

Alina says she was taught from a young age to develop her mind. Her mom and aunt were her role models growing up, and she says she never heard them complain about aging. “I’m a spirit with a mind that lives in this shell,” she says. “This shell is going to fail me eventually. But my mind is something that hopefully won’t fail me.”
