Leslie is happiest when the copy she writes brings business to her clients. Her education in journalism segued into a career in marketing, from her early days writing features for a nationwide medical group to collaborating with Deb Strout on award-winning magazine media kits. Leslie’s commitment to her craft and community led to her recognition as Rockford Chamber Woman Business Leader of Tomorrow 2004 and one of United Way’s Volunteers of the Year 2005. Today, she enjoys balancing the creativity of writing with the happy chaos of being a mom. You’ll find her at the YMCA most evenings, cheering on her daughters in the pool and volunteering for Rockford Area Youth Swimming (RAYS).
