Dr. Leezet Llorance


I am currently serving as the Director of Analytics & Decision Support  at Houston Community College (HCC) as of May 2021.  Priorto  HCC, I served as Assistant Director, Institutional Research at the Univeristy of Houston - Downtown (UHD).  My career swithed from corporate to higher education when I was hired as a CIT adjunct professor at the Kingwood campus of Lone Star College (LSC) in November 2009 .  This opportunity led to a new role as Sr. Analyst in the department of Analytics and Institutional Research (AIR) of LSC's System Office in January 2014.  My experience in IT began in 1988 when I was hired as a developer for McDonnell Douglas.  Since then I have worked as an Oracle ERP and SAP Administration consultant for Price Waterhouse (1993 – 1997) and as a BI technical manager/consultant for Oracle (1997 – 2002) which prepared me to work as an independent consultant (2004-2014) before being hired by LSC.  I am a graduate of the second cohort of LSC -LEAD.  The LSC-LEAD 2016-2017 cohort helped me to learn the uniqueness of Lone Star College’s administration and governance to align with studies in community college leadership (governance, administration, strategic planning).  I recently earned my educational doctorate in Community College Leadership from the Roueche Graduate Center of the National American University on December 15, 2017.  My latest academic achievement is a second Master of Science in Analytics as a member of the Texas A&M Analytics 2020 Cohort.  With this masters and my first masters from the University of Houston-Clear Lake in Computer Science and my bachelors from the University of Houston-Downtown in Applied Mathematics combined with my doctorate in education, I am preparing for the next goal of my career which is to offer actionable data insights through data science which is the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and a subject matter (with education as my subject matter).
