Born and raised in Washington State, Leslie cultivated a passion for visual storytelling at a young age. In fact, her favorite childhood pastime was reporting stories "LIVE" from her backyard on her parent’s VHS camcorder. Over the years as her skills, creativity, and curiosity evolved, so too did her zeal for making media that matters.

Following an internship at Good Morning America in New York City, Leslie moved to Los Angeles to begin her career in media. Two decades later, she has produced for several nationally syndicated TV shows and award-winning documentary films. Her interview subjects have ranged from heroes, icons, innovators, and influencers from the United Nations, Disney, DreamWorks, Mattel, Broadway, Riverdance, Cirque du Soleil and the Olympics.



Leslie’s favorite stories to capture are ordinary people living extraordinary lives around the world. To date, she's traveled to 30+ countries including Cuba, Brazil, Switzerland, South Africa, Tanzania, India, Ireland, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan.

In addition to her roles in TV / film production, Leslie is a faithful voice of hope, and speaks candidly about overcoming obstacles.  She has survived a near-death accident, a mild-traumatic brain injury, and conquered a vicious 15 year eating disorder. Today, she is an ambassador and advocate for health, and living a life of courage, freedom, and JOY.

When she's not on set or behind the mic, Leslie enjoys biking, kayaking, and outdoor adventures with her husband and three children in Northern California.
