ARLINGTON, VA – As USA Rice’s new Coordinator, Finance and Administration, Lesley Dixon is the first smiling face you see and mellifluous voice you hear when contacting the Arlington office.  She joined USA Rice in an “official” capacity after working as a temp here for several months.

Dixon is a relative newcomer to Washington, DC, and lives in Columbia Heights with her husband, a political pollster.  She grew up in Austin, Texas, and went to school at the University of Texas at Austin, where she was active in local theater and comedy scenes, and taught music lessons at a local guitar shop.  She also lived in Chicago for several years, where she attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, wrote content for a video game startup, and barely survived three Midwest winters.
