I am originally from Norfolk, Virgina, and got the opportunity to live in Athens, Greece for 3 years. I have 2 children, Jonathon and Krystole, and two grandchildren. I married my best friend Markeita in the Bahamas about 2 years ago. I love to travel, enjoy almost all sports, and love playing golf, pool and poker. I decided to change careers about a year ago, and absolutely love being here at NCI selling cars. Seeing the look on a 16 year olds face when they get their first car is great. It is a very, very rewarding job.

Leah Nelson - Sales Advisor


I’ve been in the auto industry since 2005, working for Acura, Infiniti, Kia, Audi and Hyundai dealerships, before joining the New Car team in February 2015. While I love selling cars, my passion is delivering “Wow” customer experiences, solving problems and developing solutions. The opportunity to help credit union members with their vehicle purchases is rewarding and exciting. When I’m not working, you will likely find me salsa dancing, listening to jazz or classical music. I look forward to making your next vehicle purchase fun, easy and hassle-free!
