LeAnn Jenkins has been the Executive Director of Oklahoma's Federal Executive Board (FEB) since May 1994 and serves as the Executive Director of the Houston FEB since October 2013.

In 1997, LeAnn was detailed to Vice President Gore's National Performance Review (NPR) for six months to assist with the Federal implementation of the Welfare-to-Work initiative. She was again detailed in 2000 (throughout the year), as the project lead for the NPR “Alumni project”.
In her forty years of Federal Service, Ms. Jenkins has worked in various staffing functions, two years of which were at the Office of Personnel Management. Special Programs include management of the Medical Placement Program at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Agency, an effort to place physically restricted employees into different positions within the agency in an attempt to retain employees. Prior to that, LeAnn served as the Program Manager for Individuals with Disabilities at Tinker AFB during which time she received an AFLC "People In Action" Award, a Public Service Award from the Oklahoma City Mayor's Committee of Disability Concerns, and the Air Force Distinguished EEO Award. She was invited by Careers and the Disabled to participate in a roundtable discussion regarding employment and accommodation of individuals with disabilities during their annual Personnel Management Seminar held in Boston, Massachusetts.
Since 1995, she has served as a keynote speaker at various federal training events regarding emergency response and the role taken by the Federal Executive Board to assist federal and state agencies, employees, and families after the 1995 attack on the Federal Building. She was the facilitator/coordinator for an interagency group, which developed an Emergency Preparedness handbook for federal agencies in 1999. This handbook was utilized nation-wide by numerous agencies and by fellow Federal Executive Boards to distribute to federal agencies in their geographic area. Since September 11, 2001, the Oklahoma FEB has re-convened an Ad-Hoc group, led by Ms. Jenkins to “review and renew” the guidance for government agencies on Emergency Preparedness and Continuity of Operations. The newly developed guidebook was published in August 2002 with national impact, receiving attention at many agencies’ headquarters, regional and field offices, as well as being utilized in the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
