  • LA was one of the greatest things in my development as a leader and a new person in the Community. It challenged me about what I had assumed about myself and why I needed the others that were in this class with me! The number of times I have called on my classmates since my May graduation is too many to recall. EVERY one in that room I now consider leaders that will attack the issues that must be addressed!

  • Leadership Albany is among the most comprehensive community leadership training programs available from anywhere I have worked and lived. The curriculum provides a thorough education about community government, industry, services, business, and education. Program class members are a foundation of professional networking that fosters relationships throughout the community."

  • "Leadership Albany empowers relationships, networking and learning beyond the "typical" leadership courses. I was probably one of the few people that was "familiar" with each of subject days; but there was not one day that I did not walk away with greater understanding. This program provides a pathway to connect deeper in the community and provides fundamental skills that are transferable to any environment or any locale."

DOD, Marine Corps Logistics Command
Logistics Management Specialist

As an employee of the Marine Corps Logistics Command in Albany, Zandrea Waldon has the honor to communicate with and provide direct supply support to deployed Marines on a daily basis, with the primary goal of maximizing readiness. She is a Logistics Management Specialist with the Department of Defense.


“I enjoy the opportunity to lead and manage a group of skilled individuals, and apply leadership and organizational behavior techniques to maintain a motivated team and work environment conducive for productivity,” says Zan. She also enjoys mentoring members of the millennial generation entering the workforce.


“I’m passionate about youth and leadership development, workforce development, and organizational change,” says the avid volunteer who enjoys spending time with her two nieces and three nephews in Atlanta any chance she gets. When she’s not working or traveling, you might find her enjoying a quiet Sunday afternoon at Starbucks (she loves coffee!) writing and researching her proposal as she works toward her Doctorate of Business Administration in Leadership from Walden University.


Zan grew up in Atlanta and Decatur, and above all would like to be known as a teacher, a light, and a giver of knowledge and love.
