During her tenure she authored landmark workers compensation reform and passed into law the first Pay for Success contract and the Kaiser Foundation to move women from incarceration to the Women Recovery Program.


The Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women recognized Leslie Osborn with the 2019 Kate Barnard Award for her efforts in advocating for women.

Osborn received a B.S. in business administration from Oklahoma State University and resides in Mustang, Oklahoma. Leslie owned and operated her own business for 22 years selling heavy duty truck parts, Osborn Pick-Up Accessories, and is the mother of two children. Osborn serves on the advisory board for SBDC, the Oklahoma Academy Advisory board, and the Canadian Valley Technology Center Foundation Board. She was in Leadership OK Class and served as the state director of the National Group Women in Government. Leslie will be speaking to the group in Poteau on August 9th @ 12:00 p.m.
