Meet The Conceptual Team

Shana Ryan and Leslie Willis have designed a personalized approached to the HR consulting arena by creating Conceptual HR Solutions. Within the corporate business structure, Shana and Leslie had sole oversight of all HR functions for over 600 employees, across 43 states for nearly 5 years.  Once the business sold to private investors, Shana and Leslie decided to use their combined experience of over 25 years in Human Resources and joined forces in creating

Conceptual HR Solutions. Shana and Leslie’s vision is to partner with new and existing small business owners in a complicated and heavily regulated HR world and ensure they are able to grow their business to its full potential.

Shana Ryan has been in the Human Resource field for over 10 years in all roles of management.   

She completed her BAS in Supervision and Management and is a Certified

Florida Notary Public.

In June of 2017 she launched Conceptual HR in order to help small businesses with their

HR needs while continuing to work from her home office.  She hopes to employee several parents

in the future that wish to have more of a

work/life balance.

In addition to maintaining the daily functions of Conceptual HR, Shana volunteers for her neighborhood social committee, children’s school, and is also an assistant coach for her 5 year old son’s flag football team.  She stays busy with her husband Christopher and their 3 children.

Leslie Willis has been in the Human Resource field for 15 years in all roles of management. She completed her BA in Business Management with a specialization in Communications from the University of Phoenix and has a Professional in Human Resources Certification from DePaul University.

Leslie and her husband, Powell, own Cousin Willie’s Smokehouse (BBQ restaurant) in

Baldwin, Florida. As a small business owner,

Leslie sympathizes and understands the personal needs and lack of time for new business owners. Leslie and Powell have 1 son, Anderson who

loves to "help" in the restaurant and

keeps them on their toes.
