Greetings, my name is Deja Lebron and I’ve been an employee with Trail Blazers for one year now. Prior to working with Trail Blazers , I had the wonderful opportunity of working for Lefferts Garden Montessori school for two years.

The same applies for trailblazers and that’s exactly why I was passionate about Joining the Trail Blazers team. I’m a very adventurous person , I love outdoor adventures , I love exploring natures habitats , I enjoy camping, reading, and family outings.
