LeAnn M. Cyr
LeAnn M. Cyr obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. She also attended Georgetown University in Washington D.C. for her Graduate Assistantship in 1995. In 1996, she completed her Master’s Degree, graduating with honors.
LeAnn’s Master’s Degree was in Education with a concentration in Higher Education Counseling & Human Development. She worked as a University Career Counselor for the first 3 years of her career before being recruited into the private sector, where she worked for a Fortune 500 company as a Corporate Headhunter; focusing primarily on the recruitment, placement and marketing of professionals in the Accounting and Finance fields. It was this period of her career that gave her the foundation in corporate America and business industry knowledge needed for her future entrepreneurial endeavors.
LeAnn continued in the staffing and recruiting industry with tremendous success, until the birth of their first child. Then, in 2005, she helped to start the Orthopaedic & Spine Institute with her husband, Dr. Steven J. Cyr. LeAnn fulfilled the roles of Chief Operating & Financial Officer for OSI from 2005-2013. In this capacity, she was primarily responsible for managing the financial, marketing, and operational aspects of the business.
In 2011, LeAnn started her own research & consulting firm, OracLe, that focused on ways to expand and profitably grow companies. Her focus was networking, commercial and grassroots marketing, and developing strategic partnerships that enhanced the client’s market share.
In the fall of 2017, LeAnn returned to the medical industry by spearheading a new venture, Surgical Associates in Spine (SA Spine), in an effort to address the ever-challenging issues that face the medical industry. As CEO and Founder, LeAnn is focused on establishing and growing SASpine’s presence in San Antonio and expanding into other cities, beginning with Houston, Texas.
Concurrently, in 2019 LeAnn decided to expand OracLe bandwidth and incorporate her first passion, consulting and advising students in higher education on how to obtain their goals by properly marketing themselves and researching universities that are right for them. She feels that helping students with the real world experience she has acquired in academia and business is the perfect way to bring her career full circle.
LeAnn Cyr resides in Houston, Texas, with her husband and four children. Their fourth child was recently adopted locally in San Antonio. The Cyrs are a cohesive team constantly searching for ways to make a positive change in their communities by contributing time and philanthropic effort to local community and global non-profit organizations with a primary focus on children and Christian-based charities. LeAnn feels it is a necessity that her children are raised to recognize the importance of being a productive and contributing member to society and giving back to their community for God’s glory, not one’s own.
